    According to frontman Anthony Kiedis, the Red Hot Chili Peppers are "in the home stretch" of finishing their first record in five years. The as-yet-untitled album is the band's first since 2011's I'm With You, and no release date has been announced yet. It will be their first album not produced by Rick Rubin since 1989's Mother's Milk.

    Instead, the Red Hot Chili Peppers have teamed up with the equally hot producer Brian Burton of Danger Mouse to produce the new record. Of the new collaboration, on Alternative Nation's Jonesy's Jukebox radio program, Kiedis said, "We had written two dozen songs before we got with him. (Danger Mouse] is like, 'Let's keep a few of those, but let's go write all new songs in the studio.' We're looking at each other like, 'Dude, we kind of already wrote the songs, bro.' He's like, 'No, I like to write new ones in the studio.' So, in honor of accommodating this new process, we wrote all new songs, and it's a good thing we did."

    In promotion of their upcoming album, the Chili Peppers will be touring a number of festivals in the U.S. and Europe, including the New Orleans Jazz Fest in April, Denmark's Roskilde in June, and both Reading and Leeds Festivals in August.
