Red Hot Chili Peppers – “The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie”

“The Adventures Of Rain Dance Maggie” is the first single from RHCP’s Damien Hirst-designed, Rick Rubin-produced 10th studio album I’m With You. How different will it sound with guitarist Josh Klinghoffer having replaced the irreplaceable John Frusciante? “We still sound like the Red Hot Chili Peppers, but it’s really a lot different,” Flea told us in last month’s Progress Report. “Josh is a very textural, poetic, and sublime musician, and just comes at it from a different angle than anything that we’ve had before.” Take a listen to “Rain Dance Maggie” below and see if you agree.

“The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie” hits digital retailers on Monday and Kreayshawn (!) has directed a video for it. I’m With You is out 8/30 via Warner Bros.
