The Red Hot Chili Peppers are preparing for The Getaway.
The California-bred rockers shared the title song from their upcoming 11th studio album Thursday. Compared to “Dark Necessities,” the first track from the record, “The Getaway” is a chiller brand of single. It bears similarities to the some sounds present on 2002’s By the Way.
For The Getaway, RHCP turned away from long-time producer Rick Rubin and nabbed the services of Danger Mouse (Gnarls Barkley, The Black Keys). Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich was also hired to mix the album, the band’s first since 2011’s I’m With You.
The band will go around the world this summer, next set to play at this weekend’s BottleRock Napa Valley Festival in Napa, California. The band resumed touring this week following Anthony Kiedis’ recent hospitalization.
