Red Hot Chili Peppers Confirm Spring 2022 Release for New Album with John Frusciante
The band have launched a pre-order for the LP
Published Oct 08, 2021Red Hot Chili Peppers have been working on their new album with returning guitarist John Frusciante, but despite reports that the LP was finished and would be coming out soon, it has now been confirmed for a spring 2022 release date.
The album is available to preorder on the band's official website — even though it doesn't yet have a confirmed title, album cover or release date. It is simply listed as "Red Hot Chili Peppers Album 2022" and a note says, "Album ships spring 2022."
UPDATE (1/28, 1:55 p.m. ET): Red Hot Chili Peppers have shared a clip of new material. Listen to it here.
Even though the album release date is a little later than anticipated, it coincides nicely with the band's upcoming tour, which runs next summer from June to September. The outing includes a Toronto date with openers the Strokes and Thundercat.
The new album will be the band's first with John Frusciante since 2006's Stadium Arcadium. See where Stadium Arcadium landed on our list of RHCP's best albums.
