Band reveal latest instalment of singles series
Red Hot Chili Peppers have unveiled the latest track in the set of 18 new singles they are slowly releasing to fans via their website.
The sixth of nine instalments was put online earlier today (February 1). The eight-minute long track is titled ‘In Love Dying’ and you can hear it by clicking on the player above. The song is available to download now.
Red Hot Chili Peppers’ plan to release new songs direct to fans was revealed in May 2012. Originally meant to last just six months, the releases have taken longer to reach their audience than planned. All of the tracks were written and recorded while touring their 10th studio album ‘I’m With You’.
Red Hot Chili Peppers will headline this year’s Coachella Festival in California alongside fellow headliners Phoenix and Blur. The band’s manager, Cliff Burnstein, whose firm Q Prime also manages Metallica and The Black Keys, told Rolling Stone magazine that the LA band signed on as the Sunday night headliner with only an hour to spare. “We’ve been in talks for months,” he revealed. “It goes down to the wire. It’s a negotiation.”
