Red Hot Chili Peppers have shared the details of their new studio album, Unlimited Love. The release is their first with guitarist John Frusciante since 2006 and their first collaboration with producer Rick Rubin since 2011. Listen to the first three songs, “Black Summer,” “Poster Child,” and “Not the One,” below. The band has a 2022 global stadium tour beginning in June. Tickets are available here.

The 2022 tour will mark the return of Frusciante to the group, as well as the band’s first ever U.S. stadium tour. RHCP will be performing their career-spanning hits as well as music from Unlimited Love.

Watch the RHCP team with the original Sept. 24 announcement

From the Feb. 4 album announcement: “Our only goal is to get lost in the music. We (John, Anthony, Chad and Flea) spent thousands of hours, collectively and individually, honing our craft and showing up for one another, to make the best album we could. Our antennae attuned to the divine cosmos, we were just so damn grateful for the opportunity to be in a room together, and, once again, try to get better. Days, weeks and months spent listening to each other, composing, jamming freely, and arranging the fruit of those jams with great care and purpose. The sounds, rhythms, vibrations, words and melodies had us enrapt.”

Added Frusciante : “When we got together to start writing material, we began by playing old songs by people like Johnny “Guitar” Watson, The Kinks, The New York Dolls, Richard Barrett and others. Ever so gradually, we started bringing in new ideas, and turning jams into songs, and after a couple of months the new stuff was all we were playing. The feeling of effortless fun we had when we were playing songs by other people, stayed with us the whole time we were writing. For me, this record represents our love for, and faith in each other.”

Unlimited Love, arriving April 1 via Warner Records, resumes a three-decade partnership with Rick Rubin [Johnny Cash, Adele]. Their creative collaboration spans legendary albums, including the diamond-selling Blood Sugar Sex Magik [1991], Californication [1999], By the Way [2002], and Stadium Arcadium [2006].
