Chad Smith Says New Red Hot Chili Peppers Album Will Be “Very Different and Unique”

Image Courtesy of Clara Balzary/Warner Bros. RecordsRed Hot Chili Peppers have a new album in the works, and, according to drummer Chad Smith, it won't sound like anything RHCP have done before.

"We've written and recorded in a way that we've never done before, so the record is going great," Smith tells Rolling Stone as part of a Twitter Q&A. "We all have high hopes that it's going to take off and we're going to do something very different and unique for the Red Hot Chili Peppers."

"We've got lots of songs, and we're working with an unnamed producer who is really challenging us to find new ways to come up with new music," he adds.

Smith also reminisces about his "drum-off" with doppelganger Will Ferrell, and reveals that he and Ferrell are working on a project together.

"I can't really expound upon details, but we have been talking about doing something next year that will combine music and comedy ­-- a show," Smith says. "It will benefit the charities that we're into. Plus, I think I need to redeem myself from how I was robbed of the Golden Cowbell."
