Red Hot Chili Peppers announce new album plans
Red Hot Chili Peppers have announced plans for their new album.

The band, who are currently working on a follow-up to 2006's 'Stadium Arcadium', have revealed that a new album could be released by October 2010.

"We're gonna write for a while, it usually takes us a while," drummer Chad Smith told Clash Magazine , before speculating that a release date for the album would be "sometime next year, maybe this time [next year]".

Also asked if Flea's experience working with Thom Yorke might affect the band's new material, Smith said the bassist had given him a CD of electronic beats to inspire him but that, at the moment, there wasn't an explicit electronic direction.

"You never know. We've got songs with piano on them right now," he added.
