The Red Hot Chili Peppers are back. With a new guitarist, â€œThe Adventures of Rain Dance Maggieâ€ marks the first single off their forthcoming album Iâ€™m With You. The single, which was released online July 18th, sounds similar to the bandâ€™s famous â€œDani California.â€
Anthony Kiedis sings, â€œHey no/ youâ€™ve got to make it rain somehow.â€ Former touring guitarist who has permanently replaced John Frusciante, Josh Klinghoffer fits perfectly with the track. His screeching riffs contrast Fleaâ€™s bass line and the cowbells at the end of the song make it a great listen.
Iâ€™m With You, which is due out August 30th, is the long awaited album since the bandâ€™s 2006 double CD Stadium Arcadium which has sold 2.3 million copies. Producer Rick Rubin commends the addition of Klinhoffer saying that, â€œit sounds like the Red Hot Chili Peppers that youâ€™ve never heard before.â€
The release of the music video for â€œThe Adventures of Rain Dance Maggieâ€ is still up in the air, but it is rumored that Kreayshawn, the female rapper of â€œGucci Gucci,â€ is set to direct it.
