American rock band and legends, Red Hot Chili Peppers, have announced that they will be releasing a new song this Thursday titled “Dark Necessities.” Their last full-length studio album release was “I’m With You,” that was released in 2011. That means it’s been five years since RHCP have dropped a new record. Now, they are releasing what we’d assume to be a single off their upcoming 2016 album release that has been announced with little detail. We do know, however, that their album is being produced by Danger Mouse, who’s worked with acts like The Black Keys, Gorillaz, Broken Bells, Gnarls Barkley, and U2. Stay tuned for their impending song release on May 5th.
