In 2006 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2006), Frusciante will tour in support of the new Red Hot Chili Peppers album, Stadium Arcadium. He will also be featured on two of the songs on the new Glenn Hughes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glenn_Hughes) (of Deep Purple (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deep_Purple) fame) album, Music for the Divine, along with Chad Smith who will be playing the drums. He will also be featured along with Flea on one track, "Hard Life", on the debut album by Perry Farrell (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perry_Farrell)'s new group, Satellite Party.
Frusciante has also been working with The Mars Volta (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Mars_Volta) in the studio on their new album Amputechture (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amputechture). Band leaders Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and Cedric Bixler-Zavala (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cedric_Bixler-Zavala) have been quoted saying that Frusciante will have a much larger role in The Mars Volta in the next CD[citation needed (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Citing_sources)]. He also tracked all of the guitar work for the next record by The Mars Volta during the creative process, which allowed Omar to work more as a producer for the album.
John is also in the process of remixing the second Ataxia record, while Josh Klinghoffer is working on the drums for 17 songs John has written for his next solo record, the follow up to Curtains. He spoke of it having a more orchestral and classical feel, perhaps implementing new instruments or playing piano as he has done in the past, although rarely.[citation needed (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Citing_sources)] There are also more electronic songs written with Josh Klinghoffer as a sequel to A Sphere in the Heart of Silence, which will be worked on whenever they find time during the Stadium Arcadium tour.
Other upcoming contributions include:

Bob Forrest (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thelonious_Monster)'s solo album, Wednesday (to be released August 22)
A Manual Dexterity: Soundtrack Volume Two (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=A_Manual_Dexterity:_Soundtrack_Volume_Two&action=edit)
