Red Hot Chili Peppers reveal Damien Hirst designed artwork for 'I'm With You'
The album cover for the Red Hot Chili Peppers new album 'I'm With You' has been revealed by the band and it features a design by British artist Damien Hirst.

Writing on their official website, the band said: "Check out our new album cover – officially revealed! Damien Hirst did it for us and we’re happy to get this out to ya!"

Speaking to Classic Rock magazine, singer Anthony Kiedis said of the cover: "It’s an image. It’s art. Iconic. We didn’t give it it’s meaning but it’s clearly open to interpretation.”
