Today/yesterday (time zones!) the Red Hot Chili Peppers played a concert for iHeart Radio to a crowd of 200 fans who had won tickets through competitions for the show. The concert was recorded and will be broadcast on June 17th which is the launch date for RHCP’s new album ”The Getaway.’

New songs from ‘The Getaway’ were played at the concert and as a result, security at the concert was tight with guests searched and no recording devices were allowed in. Dark Necessities got its second public live performance (the first being at last weekend’s Rock On The Range festival in Ohio) and Sick Love, This Ticonderoga and Go Robot were played for the first time.

By The Way

Other Information:
They discussed that Sick Love is the song that features Elton John (I’m in England, can I name him? Or is it only his partner we can’t discuss without the threat of law suits?!) and apparently it’s “really slow and mellow”. It was also played twice to allow for an edit as there were mistakes made while playing it the first time.

Anthony Kiedis wore overalls over the t-shirt Flea’s daughter Clara made for him (the now very torn white one he often wears on stage. It has ‘Anthony’ written on it).

 

Many thanks to Angra who was there!

Another RHCP Song: The Getaway Released!

“The Getaway” the title track from the forthcoming new album by the Red Hot Chili Peppers has just been released on the official RHCP sites! The download of the song “The Getaway” will be available at 12:01am local time on May 27th.

“The Getaway”

That’s right you’re right
We will do our thing tonight alright
Take me through the future
It’s time you’re fine
Just another color coded crime
Incision and a suture
You told my friend
We would get it on no matter when
A supercavitation
Let’s go you show
Me something no one will ever know
A love hallucination

Another lonely superstar
To get away inside your car
Take it much too far
Surrender to the brave inside
A lover that another tried
Take it, too my ride

You don’t have to keep it if it’s mine
(Another lonely superstar to getaway inside your car)
Another place maybe another time
(Surrender to the brave inside a lover that another tried)

Complete repeat
Sitting in your car and on your street
Lost in California
Let’s steal this wheel
Take a spin to find out how we feel
Just around the corner
Slow down for sound
Turn it up and no we can’t be found
The body that we transcend
Asleep, you weep
Find out that the trick is never cheap
A melancholy girlfriend

Another lonely superstar
To get away inside your car
Take it much too far
Surrender to the brave inside
A lover that another tried
Take it, too my ride

You don’t have to keep it if it’s mine
(Another lonely superstar to getaway inside your car)
Another place maybe another time
(Surrender to the brave inside a lover that another tried)

That’s right you’re right
We will do our thing tonight, alright
Drive the constellation
It’s time you’re fine
Just another color coded crime
The song is fascination

Another lonely superstar
To get away inside your car
Take it much too far
Surrender to the brave inside
The lover that another tried
Take it, too my ride

A May December might not be so smart
(Another lonely superstar to getaway inside your car)
Arrivals that we wish would not depart
(Surrender to the brave inside a lover that another tried)

Don’t be late cause you’re my savior
Make it great whatever stays
Golden gate my rearranger
Hold my name inside your rays

iHeart Concert

Tonight IS the night for the iHeart Radio show Red Hot Chili Peppers’ launch party concert  for ‘The Getaway’ which will be recorded for broadcast on the album release date (17th June)!

 I don’t expect much news to come out from the actual concert because there is a really strict entry policy and no phones or cameras are being allowed into the venue – which also means very little in terms of photos or videos unless the band/radio station release something :( But hopefully we will find out something about the evening afterwards!

This is dedicated to everyone going tonight! I’m totally envious (and I think everyone else is too!) but I hope you have an amazing time! You are so lucky! Enjoy!!! :)

Addition to ET Canada Anthony Kiedis Interview

et-canada-update-anthony-kiedis-interview
ET Canada released an interview with Anthony Kiedis a few days ago (it can be seen HERE with full transcript) and have now released the interview in a slightly different form. Snippets of the original interview have been interspersed with live clips of  the Red Hot Chili Peppers performing to make a news style article rather than presenting it as a straightforward interview. An additional part of the interview has been included with the new presentation that wasn’t included in the original release.

The new Anthony Kiedis article can be seen HERE

 Transcript:

Anthony Kiedis: I push pretty hard sometimes and I do take my health forgranted at a certain level because I feel strong. But every now and then the body’s like, “you’re doing something wrong and you either fix it or we’re going to let you know about it.” My body let me know I had to change my ways a little bit.
Voice over: His recovery is all part of a much tamer lifestyle now his eight year-old son is a role model to look up to.
Interviewer: How’s fatherhood changed you?

Anthony Kiedis: He’s a gift to me. You know he’s the gift to me. Being around him I feel like I get more than I give. it’s changed me in a way that I’m fuller now.
