The Red Hot Chili Peppers posted an update on the new album on their Facebook page with a picture of drummer Chad Smith with producer Nigel Godrich (Radiohead, Atoms for Peace) who started mixing the album today.
This update may verify last week’s reporting from the Red Hot Chilli Peppers fan group RHCPtv5 who reported that the band has finished recording the new album but it was not expected to be released in April as previously rumored. A confirmed release date is still uncertain but it is now expected to be pushed back to mid summer.
In October of last year, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea told Rolling Stone that the band had 30 songs written for the album and said the new material is “cool, It’s super danceable, funky shit and some real introspective, pretty stuff. It feels good, man, and it’s fun to play it.”
