Red Hot Chili Peppers are streaming the title track from their upcoming record The Getaway. The new album marks the band’s first new longplay since I’m With You, released in 2011.
“We’re near the end of it,” bassist Flea told Q magazine. “It’s new and different but without sacrificing the good bits of us. There are some songs we already had, and some new ones too. I can’t wait to play it live.” (via NME)
