Red Hot Chili Peppers have unveiled the next two tracks in the set of 18 new singles they are set to release over the next six months.
The tracks are titled “Magpie’s On Fire” and “Victorian Machinery” and you can hear them by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking. They will be formally released on September 11.
The band released tracks titled ‘Strange Man’ and ‘Long Progession’ earlier this month and will release another two tracks, this time titled ‘Never Is A Long Time’ and ‘Love Of Your Life’, on October 2.
The fourth, fifth, and sixth singles, the titles of which have yet to be announced, will follow on November 6, December 4, and December 18. More will then be released in early 2013. All the tracks were recorded during the band’s sessions for their 2011 studio album, I’m With You.
Drummer Chad Smith recently said the band had been working on new material while frontman Anthony Kiedis was recovering from foot surgery earlier this year.
“Those are just waiting,” Smith says. “We’ll go back to those when we start writing again, I’m sure – or not. We’re just always trying to come up with new stuff; usually the latest and greatest is what we use, but you never know. If there’s something that’s really good or if Anthony’s really connected to any of them, that sometimes has something to do with it, so we’ll see.”
