The Dark Necessities have brought Chili Peppers back
GRAMMY Award-winning Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees Red Hot Chili Peppers return with a new single, Dark Necessities, which was released around the world last Friday via all digital retailers.
The track is the first song to be released from the Los Angeles-based band's upcoming 11th studio album, The Getaway, due from Warner Bros Records on June 17.
Fans who pre-order the album will receive an instant download of Dark Necessities.
The album was produced by Danger Mouse and mixed by Nigel Godrich. Red Hot Chili Peppers' previous album, I'm With You, was released in 2011 and topped the charts in 18 countries, including reaching #2 in Australia.
One of the most successful acts in rock history, with four Australian #1 albums, Red Hot Chili Peppers - singer Anthony Kiedis, bassist Flea, drummer Chad Smith and guitarist Josh Klinghoffer - has sold more than 60 million albums, including five multi-platinum LPs, and won six Grammy Awards.
