Rick Rubin, a Red Hot Chili Peppers új lemezének producere (aki nem mellesleg már a Blood Sugar Sex Magik óta együtt van a bandával) a minap adott egy rövid interjút, amiben beszélt pár szót az I’m With You-ról.
Red Hot Chili Peppers: The group’s “I’m With You” comes out Aug. 30, following 2006’s “Stadium Arcadium” and marking the debut of new guitarist Josh Klinghoffer. “Josh is fantastic,” Rubin says. “He played with John Frusciante for many, many years and he actually toured with the Chili Peppers before, so he’s sort of part of the extended family. He’s stylistically very close to John but has a completely different trip. It sounds like the Red Hot Chili Peppers that you’ve never heard before.” Rubin says the group was prolific during its sessions and could well have done another double-disc like “Stadium Arcadium” but ultimately “felt like we did that. It was painful not to share all of the material that we had, but we felt it would be too much. We really wanted it to be 12 songs but it ended up being 14 just because nobody could agree on which 12.”
