The brand new album from RHCP is being streamed through iTunes right now. The whole album is played as if it was one song, so I cannot recommend any song titles right now.
The album sounds great, with the songs flowing seamlessly from one to the next. Rick Rubin brought his A-game again and took full advantage of Flea’s new piano talents.
During the hiatus following the Stadium Arcadium tour, Flea went to the University of South California to study music theory, and according to Anthony Kiedis, his new found knowledge paid off in the writing of the album.
You’ll notice a different sound coming from the guitar and that’s because John Frusciante decided to go his own way and fully dedicate himself to his solo work. His replacement is Josh Klinghoffer and he was not afraid to do his own thing.
The album is receiving some pretty good reviews from people around the web, with the most common complaint being the change in guitarists.
“I’m With You” will be available August 29th in the U.S. and August 30th in Canada.
