Kathmandu- Red Hot Chilli Peppers have announced a surprise new album. Return Of The Dream Canteen will arrive on October 14, just six months after the release of 12th album Unlimited Love.
“We went in search of ourselves as the band that we have somehow always been,” say the band in a statement. “Just for the fun of it we jammed and learned some old songs. Before long we started the mysterious process of building new songs. A beautiful bit of chemistry meddling that had befriended us hundreds of times along the way.
“Once we found that slip stream of sound and vision, we just kept mining. With time turned into an elastic waist band of oversized underwear, we had no reason to stop writing and rocking. It felt like a dream. When all was said and done, our moody love for each other and the magic of music had gifted us with more songs than we knew what to do with.
Like Unlimited Love, Return Of The Dream Canteen was produced by Rick Rubin, and is the second album released since in-out in-out guitar genius John Frusciante returned to the band in late 2019.
