New RHCP single is good



I'm digging the new song from the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, "Dark Necessities." It is off of their latest album, "The Getaway," which comes out June 17. 

I'm excited for this album. People compared their last album, 2011's "I'm With You" as being similar to 1995's "One Hot Minute" -- their worst albums. But, I like both of those. It seems as though the public didn't care for those albums because they were both different. 

Those two albums are similar in the way they're different, as both were the first after the exit of guitarist John Frusciante. "One Hot Minute" featured Dave Navarro and "I'm With You" was their first with Josh Klinghoffer, who had been a touring guitarist with the band previously.

I expect "The Getaway," the band's 11th album, to be fun. I'm really looking forward to checking it out.
