Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea deletes tweet about working with Danger Mouse on new album

Band have been recording their latest album since 2014

Red Hot Chili Peppers bass player Flea reportedly deleted a tweet in which he revealed that Danger Mouse will produce the band’s next album.

Fans managed to screengrab the tweet from Flea’s account (see below) which was deleted shortly after it was posted yesterday (February 1).

Danger Mouse has previously produced bands including U2, Beck and The Black Keys. Should Red Hot Chili Peppers be working with Danger Mouse (real name Brian Burton), it would mark their first album away from producer Rick Rubin since ‘Mother’s Milk’ in 1989.

Late last year Flea described the upcoming album as “super danceable” while drummer Chad Smith is also on record as saying that the band were working with an “unnamed producer.”

Josh Klinghoffer of the band previously revealed that the Chili Peppers spent a year in the studio without a producer.

In May 2014, Chad Smith also spoke about the early stages of writing the album.
