Red Hot Chili Peppers have confirmed their plans to release 18 new singles over the next six months.
Writing on Twitter recently, the band’s bass player Flea hinted at the new releases, writing that they will ‘put out 18 new songs over the next 6 months on 7 inch and digi’, and now those single releases have been confirmed, with the first issues arriving in August.
The first double A-side 7″ singles will be ‘Strange Man‘ and ‘Long Progression‘, due out on August 11th, and will be followed by ‘Magpies‘ and ‘Victorian Machinery‘ on September 11th. All the tracks set for release were recorded during the sessions for the Californian band’s 2011 album ‘I’m With You‘.
“Some songs seem to have a lot more of an agenda than others,” guitarist Josh Klinghoffer has said. “Some songs play well with others and some songs need more attention and a little extra care. Here are some songs that seemed to want to pair up and take a later train. Keep your eye on them, they’re up to something.”Just Published:
