    The Red Hot Chili Peppers have officially announced their new album entitled The Getaway. The record is set to arrive June 17th via Warner Bros. Records. Danger Mouse produced the album and frequent Radiohead collaborator Nigel Godrich mixed it. This is the band's first release since 2011's I'm With You.

    Along with the news of the forthcoming record, the Red Hot Chili Peppers also released the first single from the album, "Dark Necessities." This is their first record since 1989's Mother's Milk to be produced by someone other than Rick Rubin.

    The band will release a vinyl version of the album that will be foil stamped and limited to 5,000 copies. The webstore-exclusive packages also includes "Dark Necessities" on cassette and a 24" x 24" lithograph with extended artwork. Fans who pre-order the album will also receive a free download of "Dark Necessities".

    Rumor has it that the Chili Peppers will head out on tour in September, but there is no official word on that yet. RHCP has not played live since June of 2014. It is also rumored that Elton John will be appearing on the upcoming album.
