A Perfect Circle Stream Mix of Ozzy Osbourne’s ‘Diary of a Madman’ + The Cure’s ‘Lovesong’ Live
They haven’t released a studio album in nearly a decade, but A Perfect Circle are still cranking out a bunch of material. On Nov. 26, the box set ‘A Perfect Circle: Featuring Stone and Echo’ will be released, featuring live performances of all three APC albums in full. Although the set isn’t available until next week, ‘Diary of a Lovesong,’ from the live ‘eMOTIVe’ concert, is now streaming.
The track, which melds Ozzy Osbourne‘s ‘Diary of a Madman’ with the Cure’s ‘Lovesong,’ has been revealed for streaming via Spin. The creation spans 15 minutes including stage banter, so all together, ‘Diary of a Lovesong’ rides for about 10 of those minutes. If you’d rather skip the banter, ‘Diary of a Lovesong’ begins at the five-minute mark.
In addition, to the three live albums, there are both CD and DVD editions of ‘Stone and Echo,’ recorded in 2011 during A Perfect Circle’s performance at Red Rocks Amphitheater near Denver, Colo.
Other goodies in the box set include five hand selected lithographs featuring the personal signatures of both Maynard James Keenan and guitarist Billy Howerdel on one of the selected prints, a custom sculpted resin frame designed by the band and a custom made guitar pick designed by Billy Howerdel. The set is bound in a custom-made media book featuring artwork and credits. Unfortunately for those with some extra cash to burn, the physical box set is sold out, but digital editions will hit iTunes on Nov. 26.
