It’s been a while since their last album Stadium Arcadium in 2006 but the Red Hot Chili Peppers are back with a brand new hit “The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie.” The song was recently leaked a couple days ago and became available for download on the band’s website.
It is the first single off their forthcoming album I’m With You, due to be released August 30th. The Red Hot Chili Peppers have won 7 Grammy Awards and sold over 65 million albums worldwide, it’s no wonder news of this album has created a lot of buzz.
Like typical Red Hot Chili Pepper style, the band brings more funky beats with elements of punk and psychedelic rock. Fans can view the track list and also pre-order the band’s following single “I’m With You” through their website. While the Red Hot Chili Peppers actually wrote 70 songs in total for I’m With You, only 14 of those tracks were actually included on the LP.
The recording process was described as “one of evolution,” and it was mentioned that “The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie” can give fans a preview as to what to expect from I’m With You. Bassist Flea explained that the band chose songs that “filled their own space” rather than simply picking “the best ones.” They collaborated with guitarist Josh Klinghoffer for the first time.
Klinghoffer previously worked for them as their guitarist technician and is now a member of the rock group Warpaint. To add a little twist, a future collaboration with young up and coming rapper Kreayshawn who is known for her popular single “Gucci Gucci” is also in the works.
Symbolic artwork for I’m With You was proudly displayed on the band’s website. The picture, designed by British artist Damien Hirst is an interesting and abstract one that may captivate attention alone. Fans can look forward to seeing the group soon when their tour begins next month. They will start off in China, and then travel to South America and Europe before sharing the musical experience with fans in the United States.
