New Sean Lennon album

(Tuesday July 11, 2006 08:17 PM)

Eight years after his solo debut, Sean Lennon is releasing album No 2.

Friendly Fire is due out on September 26 Capitol Records announced. It follows Into the Sun, which was released in 1998.

"There was a long period after the first album where I felt disillusioned with the machinery of the industry," Lennon, 30, said in a statement.

"It's not that I stopped recording, playing, performing, I did all those things, just more discreetly.

"Friendly Fire is an experiment to see what it might be like to do music more publicly again."

Lennon, son of Beatle John Lennon and Yoko Ono, produced a short film for each of the album's tracks, directed by Michele Civetta, featuring appearances by Lindsay Lohan, Bijou Phillips, Asia Argento, Devon Aoki, Carrie Fisher, Jordana Brewster and others.

He plays various characters in the film - about betrayal and the failure of love - including a red-coated swordsman and a skate-rental worker.

A trailer for the film can be viewed online. No release date has been set.

"Dead Meat"
