Red Hot Chili Peppers Share First Release with John Frusciante in 17 Years, “Black Summer”

||, |, ,

It was back at the beginning of 2020 that the Red Hot Chili Peppers announced original guitarist John Frusciante was back in the band. In a statement, the band said they were committed to writing new songs and delivering a new album. Today, RHCP, now back with Frusciante, have announced that new album, Unlimited Love, and have shared the first single, “Black Summer.”

This is the first record that Frusciante has participated on since 2006’s Stadium Arcadium. Since then, RHCP have released two albums: one in 2011, and another in 2016. His guitar playing and songwriting talent are both crucial, so this is in fact a huge deal to have him back in the band.

Unlimited Love will span 17 tracks and it will be produced by the legendary Rick Rubin. A release date for the album is set for April 1. Rubin has worked on arguably the best Chili Peppers albums, such as Stadium ArcadiumBy The WayCaliforniacation, and Blood Sugar Sex Magik.

RHCP will also be going on a massive stadium tour to support Unlimited Love, with some insane supporting acts like Beck, Thundercat, A$AP Rocky, The Strokes, Anderson .Paak, and more. You can check out more info on the tour here.
