With The Getaway around the corner, Red Hot Chili Peppers on Thursday released their next album’s title track. The song, which sometimes sounds like a group of snakes having a friendly debate, enjoys a deceptively upbeat start before taking a turn for the mellow. It comes three weeks after the band announced their 11th studio album, due out June 17. Collectively, the record notably marks the first project not produced by Rick Rubin in years; instead, Danger Mouse handled production, and Nigel Goodrich mixed. For a taste of what to expect, listen to “The Getaway” below:
