Funk is the preacher and love is the teacher when it comes to Satellite Party. The new group formed by Jane’s Addiction/Porno for Pyros/Lollapalooza mastermind Perry Farrell, Satellite Party mixes rock and dance grooves on songs where bliss is paramount on its debut Ultra Payloaded.

For his new project, Farrell has found the perfect foil in Nuno Bettencourt. The Extreme shredder was brought on board to add slashing guitars and funky keyboards to Perry’s vision of a musical world where dance and rock could coexist peacefully. The Jane’s Addiction singer also brought in friends like Fergie, Flea, John Frusciante, and Thievery Corporation (for the collaboration “The Solutionists”). The most unusual guest is Jim Morrison—a previously unreleased vocal track by the Doors frontman forms the basis of the song “Woman in the Window”. An ardent environmentalist, Perry ensured the disc came in eco-friendly packaging.

Ultra Payloaded also features the first single “Wish Upon a Dog Star”. With the album’s mix of echo-laden Eastern-tinged psychedelia, pulsating new wave, reggae, sinewy punk, and string-topped ’70s funk, Perry Farrell continues his mission to unite a nation under one groove. The band’s live shows are a reflection of this musical maverick’s mission to loosen people up and join the party.
