The Red Hot Chili Peppers are still releasing tracks recorded during the sessions for their 2011 album, I'm With You, that were left off the disc itself. The latest is called "In Love Dying," and it's an eight-minute groove-oriented tune that is now available digitally via iTunes or at the official Peppers website. Drummer Chad Smith told us not long ago why the group decided to issue this material: "We just wanted them to come out because we just really like 'em and they would have got lost in the -- they would have waited for the, like, you know, the Warner Bros. box set in 2020, if there's even a record company around then, who knows. So we didn't want them to get lost."
- "In Love Dying," which is also available as a seven-inch single, is the sixth entry in the series of nine post-album releases.
- A total of 18 songs left over from the I'm With You sessions will see the light of day, with release dates for the remaining three sets yet to be confirmed.
- The Red Hot Chili Peppers will headline this year's Coachella Festival in California this April, alongside fellow headliners Phoenix and Blur.
