Adrian Belew has set Jan. 25 as the release date for his latest solo album, “Side One” (Sanctuary). The nine-track set was recorded with Primus leader/bassist Les Claypool and Tool drummer Danny Carey.
“‘Side One’ deals with the concept of the power trio and writing in that headspace,” says Belew, who is a member of King Crimson and has played with everyone from David Bowie and Frank Zappa to Trent Reznor and David Byrne. “As the guitar player in that equation, you’re only as good as your rhythm section and I can’t imagine a better rhythm section than Les Claypool and Danny Carey.”
Two more albums from the sessions — “Side Two” and “Side Three” — are completed, although no release dates are yet confirmed. A trio tour is being planned for 2005, as is the fourth studio album from another Belew project, the Bears.
