Red Hot Chili Peppers Reportedly Set To Make Major Announcement


RHCPtv5 is reporting that Red Hot Chili Peppers are rumored to make a new album announcement with a single release, and possibly a live debut, on April 29th.

Elton John is reportedly collaborating with the Red Hot Chili Peppers on their new album. The Daily Mirror reports that Anthony Kiedis reportedly got the singer on board when he was recently in Los Angeles.

A source said: “Anthony got in touch when he heard Elton was in town at the start of the year, and asked him to come down to the studio where they were recording. They were delighted when he said yes. The track they’ve done together is really great.

“The Chilis have always been huge fans of Elton – and it’s been five years since their last album, so they were really excited about coming back with a bang.

“Elton has been really up for working with different artists so it all coincided really well.”

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 a couple weeks ago.

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.”
