‘It’s f***ing good news, man. Do you have a single in mind?’ Kiedis said. 

Flea replied, ‘The single might be called Tippa My Tongue. I don’t know for sure.’ 

According to Billboard, Return Of The Dream Canteen will be produced by the band’s longtime collaborator Rick Rubin.

Rubin also produced their 12th studio album — and first album of 2022 — titled Unlimited Love, which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 album chart in April. It marked their first debut number-one placing since 2006’s Stadium Arcadium.

On Saturday, the band’s official Instagram Page shared an image of the upcoming album’s psychedelic cover art along with a preorder link.

The post was captioned: ‘RETURN OF THE DREAM CANTEEN OUT OCT. 14.’

The band’s account added, ‘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 waist band 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.’

‘It is amazing that a band can stay together that long. These guys have become like my family. I can’t quit them and they can’t quit me. 

‘Today at band practice I had shivers and my hair stood up just from hearing them play music. It is still working so well.’

He went on to detail how they are different now after first getting together and performing so long ago.

He said: ‘The spirit is still there but there are a lot more aches and pains along the way. The 21-year-old body could take a beating and just keep going and it can’t so much now. 

‘But we get along better, we are less self destructive and less destructive of the world around us. We still have fun everyday but we don’t have to sleep on park benches anymore!’ 

He also chatted about writing their new album in lockdown and their new upcoming tours.

‘The whole process was great, the joy is in the making of the song. And then you have to wait a long time for people to hear it and that is happening now. It’s been fun’, he explained/

‘We started jamming again in lockdown and within a couple of weeks Covid happened. I was recording vocals for six months which was a privilege to have that time and space to just write lyrics. 

‘I love it when people have their own understanding of a song and can relate to it in their own way. I have such positive memories from touring with lots of different bands.’
