The Red Hot Chili Peppers have released the first single from their upcoming album, I’m With You. “The Adventures of Raindance Maggie” is available now for streaming on their website and for download through iTunes.
Bassist Flea expressed his excitement through his Twitter account.
“Thanks all for the kind words, I hope we can touch hearts and bootys around the globe,” he wrote. “After all this time I still freak out with excitement when I hear our new song on the radio. The idea that other people hear it blows my mind.”
I’m With You as a whole is due out August 30th. The 14-track album is their first in 5 years, and the first to feature guitarist Josh Klinghoffer. Flea reportedly is contributing his newly found piano skills to the compositions in addition to his funky bass playing, since he spent time studying music theory during the break.
