The Red Hot Chili Peppers are premiering “Dark Necessities” as the lead single from their forthcoming album “The Getaway.”
Due June 17, the band’s 11th studio release was produced by Danger Mouse and mixed by Nigel Godrich.
The follow-up to 2011’s “I’m In You” marks the Los Angeles group’s first record in five years.
Fans will receive an instant download of “Dark Necessities” with pre-orders of “The Getaway.”
The Peppers recently performed at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and will play three US dates this month before launching a summer series of European festival gigs in Germany in June.
Bassist Flea made headlines last month when he performed the national anthem at Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant’s final NBA game on April 13.
Bryant delivered an epic performance for his send-off with a 50-shot, 60-point night as the Lakers earned a 101-96 comeback victory over the Utah Jazz.
