Curtains is the ninth solo album by John Frusciante released on February 1, 2005 through Record Collection. It was the last record of a six album series Frusciante released, within the span of six months.

The album was mainly composed of acoustic guitar, in contrast to his previous collaboration with Josh Klinghoffer, A Sphere in the Heart of Silence, which was mostly electronic. Carla Azar (from the band Autolux) plays drums, Ken Wild plays upright bass, and Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, of The Mars Volta, makes various guest appearances on guitar. Frusciante plays all other instruments on the album. A video was made for "The Past Recedes", which was released exclusively on the Internet.
