Nearly five years after rock vets the Red Hot Chili Peppers released their tenth studio album I’m With You, the foursome is set to deliver the follow-up LP on June 17th. Produced by Danger Mouse (Gnarls Barkley, Beck, Gorillaz) and mixed by Nigel Godrich (Radiohead, R.E.M., U2), The Getaway represents the first album the band have made without the legendary Rick Rubin at the helm.
Anthony Kiedis, Flea, and crew have unveiled the melodically funky, piano-blessed lead single “Dark Necessities” today, and kick off their world tour in support of the album May 14th at the KROQ Weenie Roast in Los Angeles.
Stream “Dark Necessities” below, and be sure to catch Red Hot Chili Peppers when their tour swings through your city later this year.
