Back in early April, the Red Hot Chili Peppers returned with Unlimited Love — a sprawling artistic statement that marked the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame band’s first album with guitarist John Frusciante since 2006’s Stadium Arcadium.

On Oct. 14, they’ll release yet another set of songs as Return of the Dream Canteen, a new record collecting the results from what was clearly a very productive recording session with Frusciante back in the studio with Anthony Kiedis, Flea and Chad Smith.

They’ve previewed it thus far with one song, the super funky “Tippa My Tongue,” and its psychedelic music video:

The album’s track listing:

Tippa My Tongue
Peace and Love
Reach Out
Fake as Fu@k
My Cigarette
Shoot Me a Smile
The Drummer
Bag of Grins
La La La La La La La La
Carry Me Home
In the Snow

Said the Red Hot Chili Peppers in a statement about this second new album of 2022:

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.

Separate from the standard versions available above, Warner Records will also offer up a limited-edition variant of Return of the Dream Canteen: Two LPs pressed on neon pink vinyl, packed with an exclusive 24 x 36 poster.

This special version will be available as part of Record Store Day’s Black Friday event scheduled for Friday, Nov. 25 — as always, a special event designed to celebrate independent music stores.
