RHCP on the Tippa My Tongue

The Red Hot Chili Peppers are set to release the first single from their forthcoming album, Return of the Dream Canteen, called Tippa My Tongue this Friday (19th August). A snippet has been released on the RHCP’s social media accounts:

Return of the Dream Canteen

Comments have been made by Red Hot Chili Peppers’ band members during interviews saying they had written enough material for a second album and that was confirmed with RHCP’s announcement during the Denver concert and on social media, that another double album, entitled Return of the Dream Canteen, will be released on 14th October! 

As always when a new album is announced, rumour and speculation is running hand in hand with facts and it’s hard to distinguish which is which. Early on today, two different photos of a track list appeared. Both were hand-written with one looking like it was written by AK. Then photos came out showing what looked like the back of the album with the (same) track list shown. I’ve only just got time to post and I went to look for the artwork photos only to struggle to find one. I did see a comment on a fan Instagram account saying the artwork pics were fake. We’ll know definitely at some point.

Flea says he “thinks” Tippa My Tongue is the first single- there is video online of the band announcing the new album during the Denver concert. Again, I’ve seen posts saying this single will be out on Friday (29th July) but I can’t find any official confirmation of that as yet. The only date given officially is 14th October for the album release.

As for vinyl… It seems like pre-orders were released for both a pink and a white limited edition vinyl over what was night time for those of us outside America (sketchy info based on what I’ve seen others say as the posts had gone by morning here). It seems the pre-orders were linked to (the time of) the concert and were only available to American fans. Dark Side Records are currently (in case this link goes too!) offering a pre-order with an alterative cover (second one shown):

Unlimited Love The Forthcoming New Album by RHCP!

Unlimited Love the new album by the Red Hot Chili Peppers will be out on April 1st 2022!

Our only goal is to get lost in the music. We spent thousands of hours, collectively and individually, honing our craft and showing up for one another, to make the best album we could. Our antennae attuned to the divine cosmos, we were just so damn grateful for the opportunity to be in a room together, and, once again, try to get better. Days, weeks and months spent listening to each other, composing, jamming freely, and arranging the fruit of those jams with great care and purpose. The sounds, rhythms, vibrations, words and melodies had us enrapt.
We yearn to shine a light in the world, to uplift, connect, and bring people together. Each of the songs on our new album UNLIMITED LOVE, is a facet of us, reflecting our view of the universe. This is our life’s mission. We work, focus, and prepare, so that when the biggest wave comes, we are ready to ride it. The ocean has gifted us a mighty wave and this record is the ride that is the sum of our lives. Thank you for listening, we hope you enjoy it. – John, Anthony, Chad, and Flea
When we got together to start writing material, we began by playing old songs by people like Johnny “Guitar” Watson, The Kinks, The New York Dolls, Richard Barrett and others. Ever so gradually, we started bringing in new ideas, and turning jams into songs, and after a couple of months the new stuff was all we were playing. The feeling of effortless fun we had when we were playing songs by other people, stayed with us the whole time we were writing. For me, this record represents our love for, and faith in each other. – John
