    Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea will drop a solo album that will serve as a fundraiser for the Silverlake Conservatory of Music. Flea tweeted (Fleated?) the following info, which we did not edit for punctuation or structure.

    "I am putting out an ep i made by myself in a couple of days. it is obscure arty mostly instrumental music, except when patti smith sings. my ep is called helen burns. all proceeds from my helen burns ep will go towards the silverlake conservatory of music. it will be available for download at any price you want to pay."

    He was quick to point out that it'll be different. He wrote (unedited by us): "it is not rhcp music or even close to it. it is a trippy freakout. on helen burns, i play trumpet, bass, synthesizers, drum machine, piano, and a bunch of other shit."

    Available now as a pay-what-you-can download, with all proceeds going to the Silverlake Conservatory of Music, get the album on the Conservatory site.

    Are you going to check out Flea's solo jaunt?
