Red Hot Chili Peppers Completing New Album With Nigel Godrich

Red Hot Chili Peppers’ 11th studio album is in “the home stretch” and now some unexpected news about it has surfaced. Danger Mouse (and definitely not David Bowie) worked on the production, and it looks like another famed producer will have a hand in it as well. Today Chad Smith tweeted that the album is in the mixing phase with Radiohead hitmaker Nigel Godrich behind the boards. (Previously RHCP bassist Flea played with Godrich in Atoms For Peace.)

Why is this so exciting? Because it almost certainly means Godrich is done working on Radiohead’s new album.

Both RHCP and Radiohead are headlining Lollapalooza this summer.
