To Record Only Water for Ten Days is the third solo album by John Frusciante, released in 2001 through Warner Music Group. Unlike his previous two solo albums, Niandra Lades and Usually Just a T-Shirt and Smile from the Streets You Hold, the record differs significantly in that Frusciante explores elements of electronica, synthpop and New Wave. It was recorded subsequent to his heroinaddiction.[3] Following a month in rehab for his addiction and his rejoining the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Frusciante felt deeply connected to the spiritual plane and was inspired by the many visions he had of spirits; the ideology of recording water for ten days refers to ten separate periods of time in which an album is conceived. The lyrics express this theme and deal mostly with philosophical and spiritual matters as well as delving into his usual brand of psychedelia-tinged personalism. It reached #30 on Heatseekers. Vincent Gallodirected a video for every track on the record. "Murderers" is featured in the segment Invisible Boards of the skateboarding home videoYeah Right!. The Track "Remain" features on episode 18 of Fox Network's hit series "24".

Frusciante's main influences for this album were 1980s synthpop, post-punk and electronica bands that did their own programming, including bands such as Depeche Mode and New Order.
