Legendary American funk/rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers have officially released The Getaway, their first studio album in five years.  The band took a bit of a different approach with this album, creating all of the material inside the studio, rather than writing it in advance, with direction of the acclaimed producer Danger Mouse.  This new strategy for the Chili Peppers is undoubtedly creates a unique listening experience for the band's rabid fan base.  Spotify users can stream The Getaway in it's entirety below, while those who aren't premium Spotify users listen to the full album via YouTube.  You can also watch the band's official music video for the album's first single "Dark Necessities" below.

Red Hot Chili Peppers, also sometimes shortened to "The Chili Peppers" or abbreviated as "RHCP", are an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1983. The group's musical style primarily consists of rock with an emphasis on funk, as well as elements from other genres such as punk rock and psychedelic rock. When played live, their music incorporates elements of jam band due to the improvised nature of much of their performances. Currently, the band consists of founding members Anthony Kiedis (vocals) and Flea (bass), longtime drummer Chad Smith; and guitarist Josh Klinghoffer, who joined in late-2009, replacing John Frusciante.

Red Hot Chili Peppers are one of the best-selling bands of all time with over 80 million records sold worldwide, have been nominated for sixteen Grammy Awards, of which they have won six and are the most successful band in alternative rock radio history currently holding the records for most number one singles (12), most cumulative weeks at number one (85) and most top-ten songs (25) on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart. In 2012, they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
