Rare Red Hot Chili Peppers song with Dave Navarro surfaces online

A rare, unreleased Red Hot Chili Peppers‘ song has found its way online. Entitled ‘Circle Of The Noose’, the track was recorded with ex-guitarist Dave Navarro, who was a member of the band in the ’90s.

Replacing John Frusciante, Navarro was part of the group for five years before departing in 1998 due to a drug addiction. Speaking out about the song in an 1997 interview, the musician said:

“One of the songs we’ve done is the greatest pop song I’ve ever been a part of … It’s pop in the sense of verse, chorus, verse, chorus, bridge, hook. I really love it and we use a loop of [qawwali singer] Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. It’s really nice. The best way I can describe it is it’s like pepped- up ’60s folk with ’90s ideals, but I would hate to label it as folk because it’s not, it moves.”

Red Hot Chili Peppers are currently finishing off their new album and are booked to play multiple festival slots this summer, including Reading and Leeds Festival 2016.
