Red Hot Chili Peppers are set to release a covers EP to celebrate their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last weekend in Cleveland, Ohio.

The six track EP sees them covering tracks by fellow Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members, including their versions of the Ramones' 'Havana Affair', Iggy and the Stooges' 'Search and Destroy', Neil Young's 'Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere', David Bowie's 'Suffragette City', The Beach Boys' 'I Get Around' and Dion and the Belmonts' 'A Teenager In Love', reports Rolling Stone.

Most of the tracks have previously been available – but only one of them digitally. The band's version of 'Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere' was recorded during their current tour.

Earlier this month Red Hot Chili Peppers gave away a live EP as a free download from their official website Redhotchillipeppers.com.

The EP was recorded on the band's 2011 European arena tour, with four of the five tracks on the free download recorded on the band's UK run of shows. The EP included the band's early singles 'Give It Away' and 'If You Have To Ask', 'Dani California' and recent cuts 'Look Around' and 'Monarchy Of Roses'.

Red Hot Chili Peppers will return to the UK and Ireland this summer to play three huge outdoor shows. The band will play Knebworth Park near Stevenage on June 23, Sunderland's Stadium Of Light on June 24 and Dublin's Croke Park on June 26.
