Red Hot Chili Peppers Announce New Album, Release Single

Red Hot Chili Peppers: The GetawayThe Red Hot Chili Peppers have announced their 11th studio album, The Getaway, will be available everywhere on June 17th. The album will be Flea and the gang’s first new album since 2011’s I’m With You.

Besides unveiling the track list and artwork, they’ve announced a full summer’s worth of festival appearances and the first single from the album, entitled “Dark Necessities”. The track floats between several grooves with Flea switching between running 8th notes, a dirty slap line, and cascading fingerstyle runs. Give it a listen:
