|John Lydon chronology|
Psycho's Path is a 1997 solo album by John Lydon, released by Virgin Records. Lydon sang on all the songs and played most of the instruments, with additional guitars and keyboards supplied by Martin Lydon and Mark Saunders.
The album was mostly recorded in John Lydon's basement studio at his home in Los Angeles. Several remixes from The Chemical Brothers, Moby, Leftfield and Danny Saber were added to the album at the request of Virgin Records to lengthen the album and attract the listeners of the dance-club hit "Open Up" by Leftfield which was remixed by The Chemical Brothers for the album.
Virgin Records released the album and gave little, if any, commercial support for its release. A tour supporting the album was started and ended after only a few dates because of Lydon's anger for the lack of support.
A music video for "Sun" was created with Lydon dancing and lip-synching in front of a blue screen. The video's premise is that of postcards that tell the story of a man who poisons his adulterous wife and ends up dancing on her grave. The Leftfield mix of the song, not Lydon's, was used for the music video.
