The record is produced by Danger Mouse and is released on June 17th, preceded by new single 'Dark Necessities' out now.
Red Hot Chili Peppers have revealed details of their first new album in five years, announcing that their eleventh album The Getaway will be released on June 17th.
It’s their first album since 2011’s I’m With You, and is produced by Danger Mouse (aka. Brian Burton) and mixed by Radiohead collaborator Nigel Godrich. Fans have noted that it’s therefore the first Chili Peppers album since 1989’s Mother’s Milk not to have been produced by Rick Rubin.
Fans had been awaiting the prospect of new material for many months, ever since the band were confirmed as one of the headliners of T In The Park and Reading and Leeds Festival this year.

The Irish rockers' new charitable track hit hard at Sunday's big game.
U2 gained maximum visibility at last Sunday's Super Bowl where the rockers debuted new single 'Invisible' to raise money for the charitable Red campaign in association with Bank of America. The track, which appeared on a commercial played during the football game, was launched to encourage viewers to support the charity.

Cee Lo, Khujo, T-Mo and Big Gipp are back with 'Age Against The Machine.'
Cee Lo Green may have had a successful project as one half of Gnarls Barkley with Danger Mouse, and a hit solo song 'Forget You' that hasn't been forgotten, but he was keen to revive the Atlantan hip-hop act that gave him his solid foundation in the music biz.
The Group Are Trialling Some New Outfits Too.
Goodie Mob, formed in 1991 in Atlanta, still consists of the same four members - Cee Lo, Khujo, T-Mo and Big Gibb - who are now back with a reinvigorated sound and a new record, Age Against The Machine. The new album is out today (27th Aug) and the group are expected to tour their new music throughout early Fall to really get the mob machine moving again.

Brian 'Danger Mouse' Burton is one of very few musicians whose work in the present day absolutely deserves your attention. Be it his work with the chart topping Gnarls Barkley, the dark garage rock of his collaboration with Mark Linkous of Sparklehorse, or his critically acclaimed production work with the likes of Beck, Danger Mouse always manages to bring something different and worthwhile to his already massively eclectic table. On Rome, the 21st century mastermind collaborates with Italian composer extraordinaire Daniele Luppi to craft a breath taking homage to Spaghetti Western film soundtracks composed in the 1960s and '70s in Italy.
