Letur-Lefr, John’s new solo release, out 9th July!
There’s been a lot of talk of John releasing something and a lot of talk of John not releasing anything. Well, the wait is finally over and here’s official information to clear all the confusion and doubts.
John is going to release an EP titled Letur-Lefr this summer. It is going to be his first solo release since The Empyrean in 2009 and he also created the artwork for it. Just like his previous albums, Letur-Lefr is going to be released through Record Collection Music. And it is YOU, the visitors of Invisible Movement who had the honour to get to know about this first!
The EP contains five songs and it will be released the week of July 9th in multiple formats (including cassette!) worldwide.
More information will follow very, very soon. Meanwhile, spread the joy and appreciate what will come our way!
LOVE! Hope this also means reissued vinyl of past albums w/Record Collection Music!
Finally. It was worth waiting. Thak you Iva for your work!
I'm just the mere messenger, don't thank me. Thank John for having decided to part from another piece of his soul and give it away to us. 🙂
I got tears in my eyes. Thank you universe!!!
: ) It sounds like a very meaningful sound from the name alone! We are and John is lucky to have decided to use his own artwork for this, it will also add a very new element to the sounds and energies within/surrounding. : )

Yes, that's it! This is soooooo great ! Thanks a lot for this piece of information Iva. I cant' wait to hear more about this. Bad news : we're still in spring.
Oh man this makes me so happy! Such good news! Thank you John 🙂 <3
YAAAAYYY, hope there's a vinyl release 🙂
Best news ever!
Does anybody know if the name translates/means anything or if it's just random words?
I think its something like Bright Fountain or Bright Reading
But Letur Lefr sounds like an awesome and trancending thing!
When I first read it I thought it said Later Life
LeTurley LeFrusciante is my guess as to what it means
Hey, what is the source for this info?
I'm crying noooooow! *-*
so happy right now
Ahh that just made my day 😀 wonderful news it is.
This is amazing. I’m afraid I’m not counting my blessings here, but I sure hope for a tour
A person in the comatorium (TMV forum) posted this:
That was said by Mina, above…one of the first comments here. She said first! 🙂
Merlijn van der Woude
Does this means his wife is involved with the music's sound?
Or is it just some kind of homage?
On The Empyrean the titles of the songs were something like this, -Before the Beginning-After the Ending, Dark/Light: half of the song sad and other half happy, Enough of me and One more of me* These two can be merged into one song. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-CL1MDsoWUc) The LeTurley-LeFrusciante thing could be something like this. John will apply his musical creativity and gives another great experience. (:
I wonder what the hell that name means?
Such great news!! Thanks for giving us the inside scoop!
Wonderful news, I can't wait to hear the album!
Oh my god!!!! Yes, that's very very very nice! i'm so happy about it!!
This is amazing news, i pray an album follows or maybe even…gulp….live dates????
no better word, sorry, peoples!
finally new music! it's so exciting!!!! thank you iva!
I knew this was going to be a great summer!
YAY YAY YAY!
worst title ever, but YAY for new music!!
Really? You care about the title more? Fuck you.
The title is an artistic expression… which at this point no one has any idea as to what it means. Either way, both the title, song names and the songs themselves are expressions of John, which you should respect.
I Turley hope he leaves Turley out of this album….but yes incredible news.
Best news ever, I have tears in my eyes.
My recent post Photo
Cool and exciting! @Adam– agreed
I guess the title does look a little like peoples' names. But, it also looks like free, letter, true, feel, let, real, tell, and that is still being very conventional to see those. : ) my initial thought was that it looked like it was from northeast africa, an ancient site or an ancient town, a person, a concept.
To me it is actually "letter lover" (a kind of pronunciation). That leturley-lefrusciante I put there to just to fool all the hypers… 😉 But since they're probably gone by now, I can tell this to you, patches… <3
I’m crying TT
This sure made my day! Thanks John, so nice of you to break the news to us fans before the rest of the world. Nice one Iva!
Almost thought he would never release a thing. BIG RELIEF!
Sooooooooooooooooo pumped for this! Glad he is letting us hear something! Maybe, if we're lucky, this will open the floodgates and we'll be able to hear some of what he's been recording for the past couple years! 🙂
Thanks so much, Iva. Well worth the wait. 🙂
Man, less than 2 months till release, that is sweet. Don't know what to expect but I put all my trust in John and he'll deliver.
I guess I know, what will be my top 5 summer hits this year B)
Yyyyeeesss john i cant wait !!!!!
It's a concept ep about a place in spain he visited…
could be 🙂 http://www.worldairports.de/Arpt_Showinfo.php?id=13430&lang=de
maybe a trip like this 😉 but who knows.
i heard about "Leturley – Lefrusciante"
Can anyone site any sources for any of this information?
I replied to you on Facebook, assuming it was you and assuming you meant "cite".
Oh plz dont have a heavy nicole turley influence is all i can say….
Yes finally I’ve been waiting for this moment whoo hoo.
OH MY! Indescriptible joy running through my body right nooow! Can't wait! Thank you great creators of Invisible Movement!
So five new tracks hey?! That means we still potentially have another 395 to come! The future looks bright…!

Thank God for this wonderful news! Thanks God for John Frusciante!
John your an inspiration to me, you have changed my life and I simply cannot wait for this EP!
I wish JF could know what this means to us. Does he have any idea?
casette??? sounds like johns living the hipster dream!

I'm as happy as a frenchman in some very nice trousers!!
Seriously, this is the best news. Now I won't be able to think of anything else for 2 months!

Just reading the title I think this album is going to be really different compared to the others, this will probably be the kid a of john frusciante
nice to hear this news, finally expected news have came out… I hope this EP will collaborate without any rappers and rap sounds =)) just john's vocals and his glamarous guitar's melodies will be glorious for me =)) i miss to hear albums like shadows collide with people, curtains, ataxia stuff etc. from him. Actually i expected more solo project from him but it will be first after rhcp. i hope this EP will be first study for beginning of his long solo albums projects like in 2004/05.
there is something in the name, letur lefr, le meaning the in french, then perhaps we have a translation the turley, the frusciante. whatever it means, cant wait to hear it.
Wow, the possibilities……… Thankyou John……….!
Where I live it will be a release in the middle of winter…. -Canberra Australia…
Peace and love to all living things
that's so great! and I didn't expect it to happen
Let Your Life Air.
Im looking for this so much,thanks.
My recent post matt_camaleon: Nunca hay que minimizar cuando alguien se siente discriminad@; menos cuando se tiene el valor de decirlo..Para aprender entre tod@s
Excellent news. When you take a good look at John It's hard to believe those speculations about him not releasing anything. He just loves writing songs. Anyway, thanks Iva.

Finally!! he's here again!!
YEAAHHHH Finally, cant wait to get it, this is so nice!
Thank you John!

Finally… HE is back!!!
BUT, How do you guys get this information? Does he have an official site where he can announce these things?
He basically does have an official site, but for whatever reason, it is rarely used and event organisers, management and the like often publish whatever they have through this website first. That is likely their way to show how much they appreciate the community. 🙂
What record label is releasing it? Anyone know?
You might want to read the entire news item carefully next time. 😉
"Just like his previous albums, Letur Lefr is going to be released through Record Collection Music."
Wow great news, i was expecting it!! Just thought it would be more then just a E.P.
but five song from frusciante is enough to calm down my soul for a while…
@OSouthworth – John fans, Twitter me! – I WANNA TALK 'JOHN' WITH YOU ALL!! ALSO IT'S BEING RELEASED ON MY BIRTHDAYYY!!!
I really like maestro Frusciante but lots of you, are too much fan(atic).
Ti prego di non giudicare nessuno per essere così felice. Grazie. 😉
My recent post Dani na dokovima
Yes, most of us here do keep in touch with what John does, but the fact that he hasn't released new music in years means we're looking forward to what he has been doing. We're not stalking/intruding on his life, thus we are not out of line fanatics as you speak of. We just want to know what musical thoughts he has had in the past 3 years and the fact that he shared those thoughts with us is beautiful and amazing! So most of us are very happy and excited to hear his new thoughts!
haha. What do you expect? You are aware this is a frusciante fan website right?
Ahah, you gave me the best reply! Thanks!
Non Ã¨ un giudizio malevolo nÃ© irrispettoso, Ã¨ la mia opinione! Grazie a te sorella!
Johns music is great > life is great
Kelly, I think that you’ re definetively right but I can’t share what you said completely. Who is talking about stalking or intruding others life? Not me! To me, the meaning of “fanatic” is not the same you are talking about.
Been waiting so long can not wait to hear some great guitar and great music, thanks John,!!
Best news all year,can not wait to hear great guitaring and great music thanks John, please come to Australia.
john, if you come to australia for a solo tour, i will die. but it will also be the best thing to ever happen to me.
hopefully 5 tracks with a 2 hour length… 😉
That can only demonstrate Frusciante's true leadership qualities! Replacing a minion with another who can provide him with sexual intercourse, warm meals and is completely inferior to him is a brilliant idea! He should be selling books on his knowledge to middle-eastern revolutionary forces!
i keep forgetting and then remembering and getting all excited again! i really didn't expect anything to be released so near in the future. 🙂
i'm eager to find out more!
i can't waitttt for more info! 🙂
also, iva, totally random and you don't have to listen – as a web navigability thing, i always feel like it would be natural to have the big banner on the top of the page be clickable and take me automatically to home. i know there's a home button, but for whatever reason, my natural instinct is to click on banners to get to the home page. no web design knowledge whatsoever – and i love the new layout! – but just my input.
I love to run with John on my mp3 but really need new songs!
the way he describes it makes me extremely wary.
YAY. YAY. YAY. YAY. YAY. the more i think about it, the more excited i get. because, every time in between a john record i start to get slowly depressed (subconsciously), and upon news of a new one it's like being reborn or some shit! FUCK YES. I LOVE YOU JOHN.
Yes i heard it yesterday and John is so emotional!!!!!!!!!he is so deep guy and if yo preciate his work for you this album will be tottally new thing but is a magic!! John is an incredible artists
