Red Hot Chili Peppers have shared the title track from their upcoming new album 'The Getaway'.
'The Getaway', their first record since 2011's 'I'm With You', will be released next month (June 17). It was produced by Danger Mouse and mixed by Radiohead's Nigel Godrich.
Following on from the album's lead single 'Dark Necessities', the band have now unveiled the song 'The Getaway'. Stream it beneath.
The band's frontman Anthony Kiedis recently updated fans about his health after being rushed to hospital with intestinal flu.
Meanwhile, bassist Flea has bemoaned the state of modern rock music, saying that the genre is dead.
Flea previously said that the band were "heading into a new era" as they finished work on the LP.
"We're near the end of it," Flea told Q. "Danger Mouse is producing this time, instead of Rick Rubin. Were heading into a new era and we're really excited."
Asked how the album was sounding, he added: "It's new and different but without sacrificing the good bits of us. There are some songs we already had, and some new ones too. I can't wait to play it live."
Meanwhile, the band have a series of tour dates and festival appearances booked for the summer. Among those dates is a headline slot at Reading and Leeds Festival 2016.
They will also headline T In The Park and have been confirmed as headliners for this year's Lollapalooza.
'The Getaway' tracklist:
'We Turn Red'
'The Longest Wave'
'Feasting on the Flowers'
'Dreams of a Samurai'
