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.
