Red Hot Chili Peppers Announces New Album “Unlimited Love”, Shares New Song “Black Summer”
- American rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers is back. The band announced their twelfth studio album “Unlimited Love” would be released on April 1, 2022.
It is their first album in six years since the 2016 album “The Getaway” and is first new album with guitarist John Frusciante since 2006’s “Stadium Arcadium”.
The album comprises 17-track, produced by Rick Rubin, who is first working with the band since 2011.
From the album, the band unveiled a new song “Black Summer” along with a music video on February 4th.
It was written by Anthony Kiedis, Flea, John Frusciante and Chad Smith. Produced by Rick Rubin. The video was directed by Deborah Chow.
Red Hot Chili Peppers said of the album, “Our only goal is to get lost in the music. We spent thousands of hours, collectively and individually, honing our craft and showing up for one another, to make the best album we could. Our antennae attuned to the divine cosmos, we were just so damn grateful for the opportunity to be in a room together, and, once again, try to get better. Days, weeks and months spent listening to each other, composing, jamming freely, and arranging the fruit of those jams with great care and purpose. The sounds, rhythms, vibrations, words and melodies had us enrapt.”
- The band continued, “We yearn to shine a light in the world, to uplift, connect, and bring people together. Each of the songs on our new album UNLIMITED LOVE, is a facet of us, reflecting our view of the universe. This is our life’s mission. We work, focus, and prepare, so that when the biggest wave comes, we are ready to ride it. The ocean has gifted us a mighty wave and this record is the ride that is the sum of our lives. Thank you for listening, we hope you enjoy it.”
John Frusciante added, “When we got together to start writing material, we began by playing old songs by people like Johnny "Guitar" Watson, The Kinks, The New York Dolls, Richard Barrett and others. Ever so gradually, we started bringing in new ideas, and turning jams into songs, and after a couple of months the new stuff was all we were playing. The feeling of effortless fun we had when we were playing songs by other people, stayed with us the whole time we were writing. For me, this record represents our love for, and faith in each other.”
