The new Red Hot Chili Peppers album is “near the end” according to the group’s bassist, Flea. He says they’re “heading into a new era,” which includes working with Danger Mouse, and Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich. Their album, a mix of songs they already had and new stuff, will likely be mixed by Godrich.
Chad Smith, the Chili Peppers’ drummer, posted a photo in-studio with Godrich (who is also in Atoms For Peace with Thom Yorke and Flea). So if you were already hyped for a new RHCP album, this one shouldn’t disappoint.
Flea told Q, “We’re really excited.” Danger Mouse as producer and Godrich as the sound mixer? “It’s new and different but without sacrificing the good bits of us. There are some songs we already had, and some new ones too. I can’t wait to play it live.”
Red Hot Chili Peppers are also set to play various festivals this summer. Check out this page for more info and to find out where they’re playing.
