Red Hot Chili Peppers announced their brand new studio album, ‘Return of the Dream Canteen,’ will be released on October 14th on Warner Records. The surprise announcement was dropped at Denver’s Empower Field to a rapturous response as the North American leg of their critically and commercially acclaimed global stadium tour kicked off.
The news of ‘Return of the Dream Canteen’s’ imminent release marks the band’s second album release of 2022, hot on the heels of the platinum-selling chart-topper ‘Unlimited Love’ which was released in April. It will also be the band’s second Rick Rubin-produced album of 2022, and reinforces their reputation as a band at its absolute peak, riding the crest of an undeniable creative wave.
“We went in search of ourselves as the band that we have somehow always been. Just for the fun of it we jammed and learned some old songs. Before long we started the mysterious process of building new songs. A beautiful bit of chemistry meddling that had befriended us hundreds of times along the way. Once we found that slip stream of sound and vision, we just kept mining. With time turned into an elastic waistband of oversized underwear, we had no reason to stop writing and rocking. It felt like a dream. When all was said and done, our moody love for each other and the magic of music had gifted us with more songs than we knew what to do with. Well, we figured it out. 2 double albums released back to back. The second of which is easily as meaningful as the first or should that be reversed. ‘Return of the Dream Canteen’ is everything we are and ever dreamed of being. It’s packed. Made with the blood of our hearts, yours truly, the Red Hot Chili Peppers,” shared the band.
