Red Hot Chili Peppers Penned 70 New Songs

(Gibson) When making their new album, the Red Hot Chili Peppers certainly had plenty of songs to pick from. Bassist Flea said the group wrote 70 songs for I'm with You, which is due in August.

"What was important to us when we put the record together was to make sure that each song filled its own space and was not like another song on the record," he told BBC Radio 1 Newsbeat. "We wrote 70 songs, so it's not even necessarily all the best ones that we put on, but just the ones that occupy their own space."

The bass player went on to say that the Peppers' new single, "The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie," in no way expressed the complete picture of what fans can expect from the upcoming album.

"I like the song. It's a cool, simple, funky, little jam but it's completely different, there's nothing else on the record that sounds anything like it," Flea said. "It's a tricky one because all of the songs on the record are so different." more on this story
