"Finding songs that seem to want to join hands with others is a special task that require the right people ... and the right songs," said RHCP guitarist Josh Klinghoffer. "Some songs seem to have a lot more of an agenda than others. Some songs play well with others and some songs need more attention and a little extra care. Here are some songs that seemed to want to pair up and take a later train. Keep your eye on them, they're up to something."
Each of the nine seven-inches will feature cover artwork by Kelsey Brookes.
Red Hot Chili Peppers are on a world tour in support of I'm With You, and playing sold out arenas around the globe.
