‘Enclosure,’ John Frusciante’s upcoming studio album, is currently streaming via a satellite
Former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante is doing something special, and a bit spacey, in support of his upcoming solo album, “Encore.” Last Sunday (March 30), Frusciante plopped the album onto an experimental satellite and launched into outer space.
Now, the satellite and album are orbiting the Earth, and fans are able to listen to the songs via a mobile app that’s working in conjunction with the satellite.
“‘Enclosure’ is a musical masterpiece, and we’re thrilled to be able to utilize our proprietary space technology to facilitate this unprecedented form of space-enhanced distribution,” says Randa Milliron, co-founder and CEO of Interorbital Systems, a spacecraft manufacturing company that’s supplying the high-end technology for the project.
Streaming is happening now through the end of the day on April 7, at which point the satellite will cease transmitting. Listeners are able to hear the album when the satellite, named Sat-JF14, is over their specific geographical regions, streaming via a iOS or Android device using the Sat-JF14 app.
“Enclosure,” which is Frusciante’s 11th solo album, will arrive the typical way on April 8. The Sat-JF14 app is available to download now via Frusciante’s official website.
