Virgin Music Group Worldwide announced that Virgin has signed rock visionary Perry Farrell to a worldwide recording agreement. He will be signed to Virgin Records America and his album will be distributed and marketed by the Virgin Music Group throughout the world. Perry is presently in the process of recording his new record, "The Diamond Jubilee," tenatively scheduled for release worldwide in 2001.

As leader of Jane's Addiction and Porno for Pyros and founder of the Lollapalooza Festival, Perry Farrell has led rock audiences down some mighty interesting roads and elevated their consciousness along the way. With "The Diamond Jubilee," his 2001 album for Virgin Records, the rock visionary is taking us to an exciting new place.

As the centerpice of his career, "The Diamond Jubilee," is a world party plan that includes the most gorgeous soundscapes and vibrations on the planet earth. All new music and attitude for the millennium. Bringing inspiration to the global dance culture.

As Perry recently told an interviewer: "A jubilee for this time means a great, great party. It's the oldest kind of prophecy going, and it has to do with the redemption of man and of the Earth."

A Jubilee cycle occurs every 50 years--it's a time to forgive each other, forego debt, release people from poverty, and redeem ourselves.

Perry took his Jubilee celebration to a whole new level when he performed a sold-out concert at the Palace in Los Angeles in November 1999. According to allstar magazine, which described his performance as "an engaging blend of world music sensibilities and electronic edge," the evening featured: "numerous elaborately dressed female dancers, both on stage and on platforms around the 1,200 capacity venue. Multiple drummers and percussionists laid down crazy jungle beats while an accompanying video presentation, shown on one of the theater's large side walls, combined kaleidoscope images and other similar trippy effects."
