He may no longer be part of the  Red Hot Chili Peppers , but there's no shortage of musical activity in  John Frusciante 's life these days.  The former Chili Peppers guitarist will be appearing on the new  Duran Duran  album.

There are no public details as to how this seemingly unusual pairing happened, but members of Duran Duran have announced the news on their  official website .  In part, the message reads, "Yes it's true, the extraordinarily talented John Frusciante has indeed been doing some work...on our new album.  We are thrilled with the results.  We are all such big fans of John's work and are honoured to have him adding his magic to the record!"

Alas, there's no chance so far to catch John onstage with the British band: The post says, "There are no current plans for John to tour with us, but his guitars sound incredible on the tracks."

The as-yet-untitled album with be Duran Duran's 14th studio effort and their first since 2010, when they released  All You Need Is Now.

Frusciante just released a solo album called  Enclosure , on April 8.
