Oh yes yes yes! As you’re all no doubt aware, the Red Hot Chili Peppers have a new album called The Getaway, and it’s set to drop on June 17!
This is fantastic news. At least it is for me, I sure do love me some Chilis.
The first single, Dark Necessities, is already a classic Chilis tune. Most of the elements are here – yet another funky Flea bass riff, slinky drums, that Chilis sound… all that’s missing is the guitar in the fore. I need that damn guitar! Haha. At least there’s a solo! Then it sticks around towards the end.
Here we also have some excellent piano work that, as much as anything else, defines the tune, gives it that soulful feel. The tune builds, and proves the Chilis haven’t lost one damn step.
This one’s gonna be huge.
