Az Electronic Beats magazinnak adott interjúban John Frusciante elmondta, hogy nem akar többet zenét csinálni senkinek, mert ha a közönségre figyel, akkor nem tud fejlődni, tanulni.
No. For the last year and a half I made the decision to stop making music for anybody and with no intention of releasing it, which is what I was doing between 2008 and 2012. I felt that if I took the public into consideration at all, I wasn’t going to grow and I wasn’t going to learn. Being an electronic musician meant I had to woodshed for a while, so I have a good few years’ worth of material from that period that’s never been released.
