What's Perry Farrell up to these days? We're glad you asked! When he turned up at Fashion Week last week and performed with Dave Navarro at the Rose Bar, and again at a John Varvatos party, he set off rumors that Jane's Addiction might get back together. And they might! After the band's original lineup played a set at the NME awards in April, he told reporters a reunion was as likely as "there being commercial space flights." But last week he told us, "The trick is, I believe in commercial space flights. It could happen. Sure, why not? I've been working with [bassist Eric Avery] for seventeen years. That trumps everything."

In the meantime, though, Farrell has another huge gig coming up, and Vulture has the exclusive: He's writing a crucial song for Twilight, the movie adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's mega-selling young-adult vampire saga, due on November 21. The track is tentatively titled "Going All The Way (Into the Twilight)" and will be a Farrell solo venture produced by Atticus Ross and mixed by Alan Moulder. "I don't like to write albums anymore, because I have enough material in my life," Farrell told us. "I mean, I used to work on a record for, like, three and a half years and then people would only listen to or play two songs. I'd go, 'What happened to the other eleven songs?' So now I go, 'Here's one, here's one, here's one,' and they love them all."
