[Music News] Prepare for the next Red Hot Chili Peppers album

The members of The Red Hot Chili Peppers are back in the studio recording their next, yet to be titled, album.  This will be the band's first album since their 2006 success, Stadium Arcadium. Drummer Chad Smith has reported that the album is about halfway done and so far, the guys are happy with the way things are going. So far around 20 songs have been tracked and the boys are hoping for a March release.  The group has said this LP will have a bit of a different sound due to a few new elements.  First, with the departure of guitarist John Frusciante, Josh Klinghoffer will be bringing his talents to that position.  Secondly RHCP are branching out from their norm of funk-pop.  Flea and Klinghoffer to a trip together to Lagos, Nigeria and Ethiopia and were inspired to go a more Afro-pop direction. The members of RHCP have been busy indeed.  During the group's break, Flea worked on Bryan Ferry's new album, Olympia, and also toured with Thom Yorke for the group Atoms of Peace.  Even now hes planning a new project with Blur/Gorillaz front-man Damon Albarn and afrobeat drummer Tony Allen (you can tell flea is really excited about his new afro-inspiration).  Meanwhile Chad Smith plans to record with Chickenfoot in January, though he has already confirmed that he wont tour with the band but is committed to RHCP.
