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.

The creative energy that burst forth from Frusciante rejoining old pals Anthony Kiedis, Flea and Chad Smith was apparently so plentiful that the group has another record coming out on Oct. 14. As announced recently, it’s called Return of the Dream Canteen — and here’s its first single, the super-funky “Tippa My Tongue,” which debuted late Thursday with a wild aventure of a video and blends many of the different eras of the Chili Peppers, leaning particularly heavy on Flea’s bass plucks:

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.
