“Dark Necessities” is our first taste of Red Hot Chili Peppers‘ eleventh studio album. Set to be released June 17th, Anthony Kiedis stays true to his classic rhythm, laying down less apologetic lyrics as the band goes with a more contemporary funk jam. The vocals are a nod to Nashville Skyline-era Bob Dylan and, layered with Flea’s heavy bass pulses running beside Josh Klinghoffer’s soulfully fluid strings, provide the best example yet of their evolution. Listen above.
