Listen to Two Songs from the Latest Single in the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Single Series
As part of the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ single series, the band have been releasing two tracks available as a 7” vinyl or digital downloads. These tracks are left over from the I’m With You album sessions, and a few of the tracks likely could’ve (and maybe should’ve) been on the album.
The fourth of nine installments is out now and you can stream the tracks Hometown Gypsy and The Sunset Sleeps below. Both are non-funkified versions of the Chili Peppers, which might disappoint some fans, but the band are much more than that. Besides, Flea just turned 50 a few weeks ago, and Anthony Kiedis did just yesterday, so we can’t have the band jumping around forever.
That being said, I really like Hometown Gypsy, with its one-two bass beat and wild west saloon styled music during the verses. The Sunset Sleeps isn’t as good, and is worth of it’s B-Side status. Check them out below.
