Red Hot Chili Peppers announce single series details: First pair arrive in August
18 songs released over 9 singles, with a 7" surprise
Red Hot Chili Peppers' single series will kick off with a "Strange Man."
As previously reported, the veteran rock band will be dropping 18 previously unreleased songs left over from their "I'm With You" sessions. Today, they detailed the various singles, starting with "Strange Man" b/w "Long Progression" on Aug. 14.
Every new single will be released in pairs thusly, with "Magpies" and "Victorian Machinery" on Sept. 11, "Never Is A Long Time" and "Love Of Your Life" on October 2, 2012 and whatever songs they choose next to be on Nov. 6, Dec. 4 and Dec. 18. They have not yet scheduled the last two singles, which will arrive in early 2013.
"Some songs seem to have a lot more of an agenda than others. Some songs play well with others and some songs need more attention and a little extra care. Here are some songs that seemed to want to pair up and take a later train," explained RHCP guitarist and recent Immaculate Noise interviewee Josh Klinghoffer in a release.
The 7" releases will each have covers that, when combined, make a whole of a larger piece of artwork. Kelsey Brookes was behind the work: according to the release, "Brookes' well-documented background in microbiology, surf culture and folk art combine in explosive prisms of raucous color, bold imagery and timeless motifs."
