Jane's Addiction - "Another Soulmate"

Legendary 90s alternative rock gods Jane’s Addiction are back with a new standalone single, “Another Soulmate.” Just in case the legacy of Jane’s Addiction hasn’t been tarnished enough for you, this song just might do it. Even though “Mountain Song” and “Summertime Rolls” are classics I will drop everything to listen to any time they come on, I pretty much gave up on Jane’s when Dave Navarro started doing reality shows with Carmen Electra. “Another Soulmate” is just terrible. The song is about a friend of Perry’s wife who declares each new loser she starts dating to be her soulmate. Because that’s what you want in a Jane’s Addiction song. In Rolling Stone, Perry has also said it’s their attempt at writing a “Beatles-esque short song that would be fast and furious and it would just be fun, dig it and move on, short attention span." Keep in mind that this is how a 54 year old man talks. If you still decide you want to listen to “Another Soulmate,” Rolling Stone has the exclusive.
