Flea Promises ‘Introspective,’ ‘Super Danceable’ New RHCP Album
When Red Hot Chili Peppers recorded their last record, 2011’s I’m With You, it was a different experience for the group. “We had a new guitar player [Josh Klinghoffer] and it was a real feeling-out process with each other,” Flea tells Rolling Stone. “We didn’t want to play gigs with him until we’d made a new record. This time, it feels a lot better than the last one.”
Now that the band has spent some time on the road with Klinghoffer, the bassist says they’ve been able to “establish a new language” within the group. With the group beginning work on their new record, this new connection is making everything easier and the process is moving smoothly. “We’ve been writing and rehearsing, rolling up our sleeves, getting in the studio and doing it,” the bassist says. “We’re nearly finished writing. We’ll go in the studio sometime in the next couple of months.”
As for the direction of the as-yet-untitled songs, he says, “It’s cool. It’s super danceable, funky shit and some real introspective, pretty stuff. It feels good, man, and it’s fun to play it.”
Although Flea won’t offer a timeline for the album – “I don’t want to say something and be off,” he says – he’s optimistic for how it’s coming along. “I would hope that in a year from now, we have a record out and we’re on a world tour,” he says.

Music is the voice of God, man. It’s the thing that keeps us together. It crosses every boundary that exists. Every boundary. I’m talking about boundaries to other dimensions beyond ethnic, economic, social-economic and every boundary. Music brings us together. Music is the voice of the people. Music is love. Music saved my life.  — Flea

I try to keep myself emotionally and spiritually in a place where I’m a creative person. I just want to be able to give creatively to life. I want to take pride in what I do. To do it with dignity that is all I ever wanted to do – to do in my way, not anyone else’s way, to be myself.

In some ways it’s good to hold on to a few of your demons. There were times a couple of years ago – I was going to see this lady who was gonna do this kind of ritualistic cleansing of my inner-self and John got really worried. Like, ‘Whoa, be careful there because I don’t want this lady getting rid of all your dark energy because I rather enjoy the creative element that is born from it. Don’t go getting too clean on me because we might not have anything to work with here.’ I don’t think our troubles are completely over. We’re a bit bent in the head and I think that serves us well.
