Red Hot Chili Peppers have revealed that they are working on a new album.

The band are currently recording the follow-up to 2011's 'I'm With You', drummer Chad Smith has revealed.

"It's only been a couple of months, so we're just starting to write and get in the groove of things," he told Billboard. "This is my favourite time, being creative, coming up with ideas. You go there at 11 o'clock with something that wasn't a piece of music, everyone collaborates on something, three hours later you've got something that's a piece of music that wasn't there before."

While Smith says it is too early to define the sound of the new album, he added that the band are "always trying to change and grow and do new stuff". He added: "So we don't make the record that we made three years ago, we're gonna make something different. And you never know what that is going to be."

Last month, it was announced that Smith's bandmate Flea would be releasing an album with his new band Antemasque, which also features Cedric Bixler-Zavala and Omar Rodríguez-López of The Mars Volta. Their self-titled debut will be released in July.
