Red Hot Chili Peppers album in the “home stretch”

A new Red Hot Chili Peppers may not be that far away, says the band’s frontman Anthony Kiedis.

Speaking to Jonesy’s Jukebox radio show, he spoke of the band’s collaboration with producer Danger Mouse.

“We had written two dozen songs before we got with him. [He] is like, ‘Let’s keep a few of those, but let’s go write all new songs in the studio.’

“We’re looking at each other like, ‘Dude, we kind of already wrote the songs, bro.’ He’s like, ‘No, I like to write new ones in the studio.’

“So, in honour of accommodating this new process, we wrote all new songs, and it’s a good thing we did.”

The band are “in the home stretch” of finishing the record, he added.

Red Hot Chili Peppers will visit the UK later this year to headline Reading & Leeds festival, which will run from 26th – 28th August.
