Lots of news sites are picking up on Flea’s deleted tweet yesterday (see post below) where he said the producer of the new album would be Danger Mouse. Most are saying little new e.g. this from Consequence of Sound:
Red Hot Chili Peppers are the latest group of high-profile rockers to enlist the talents of super producer Brian Burton, aka Danger Mouse.
In a since deleted tweet, Chili Peppers bassist Flea confirmed Danger Mouse as the previously mentioned “unnamed producer who is really challenging us to find new ways to come up with new music.”
“The new album is shaping up good,” drummer Chad Smith explained in a recent interview with Rolling Stone. “We’ve done the ‘guys get in the room and jam out songs, everybody playing together all at once’ thing. And we wrote a bunch of songs that way. And we’re now going to try another method that will be really challenging for us and will bring new, exciting results for the band. We’ve written and recorded in a way that we’ve never done before, so the record is going great. We all have high hopes that it’s going to take off and we’re going to do something very different and unique for the Red Hot Chili Peppers.” Source
