Only a few months after the release of their 12th album, Unlimited Love, Red Hot Chili Peppers have surprise-announced a follow-up, titled Return of the Dream Canteen.

Arriving October 14 via Warner Records, the new LP is, like Unlimited Love, produced by Rick Rubin, and marks the band’s second outing since the return of longtime-on-and-off guitarist John Frusciante in 2019.
