The new album will mark the band's first album since the return of their guitarist John Frusciante in 2019. Anthony Kiedis tells NME â€œI really didnâ€™t want to tell the same old story that weâ€™ve been hearing for the last 50 years in rock music,â€ about the RHCP's new album.
He adds â€œI liked reaching out in 10,000 directions and seeing what was out there. We werenâ€™t limiting ourselves but trying to tap into something that is honest and emotional. Hopefully, weâ€™ve said something that hasnâ€™t been said before, or at least said it in a way that hasnâ€™t.â€
The band spoke about the reconnection with Frusciante and the change in their sound.
However, Keidis said â€œThe biggest event, honestly, was John returning to the band. That was the most monumental change in our lives. And God was I down for anything and everything.â€
