Published Jul 05, 2011Red Hot Chili Peppers are gearing up for their tenth studio LP, I'm With You, due out August 30 via Warner Bros. We've already seen the tracklist and heard some details about the disc's African leanings. Now, we've got the album cover to tide us over until the first single is released.
That's it above. A fly sitting on a pill against a white background? We're confused too. Then again, anything is a step up from 2006's Stadium Arcadium, which had a cartoony image that looked like it came from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
As you may already know, I'm With You is the band's first album since the mid-'90s not to feature longtime guitarist John Frusciante. He has been replaced by RHCP's previous touring axe-man, Josh Klinghoffer.
Expect the lead single, "The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie," to premiere on July 18.
