"Finding songs that seem to want to join hands with others is a special task that require the right people... and the right songs!" said RHCP guitarist Josh Klinghoffer. "Some songs seem to have a lot more of an agenda than others. Some songs play well with others and some songs need more attention and a little extra care. Here are some songs that seemed to want to pair up and take a later train. Keep your eye on them, they're up to something..."
Each of the nine seven-inches will feature cover artwork by Kelsey Brookes (www.kelseybrookes.com). Brookes' well-documented background in microbiology, surf culture and folk art combine in explosive prisms of raucous color, bold imagery and timeless motifs.
