Red Hot Chili Peppers unveiled the new single “Tippa My Tongue” along with a video for the song directed by Malia James incorporating Julien Calemard and Thami Nabil’s animation. “Tippa My Tongue” is the lead single from the band’s forthcoming new studio album, Return Of The Dream Canteen.

Due out on October 14 via Warner Records, Return Of The Dream Canteen marks the Chili Peppers’ second studio album of 2022 following the release of Unlimited Love in April. Longtime collaborator Rick Rubin produced both albums continuing a relationship that saw the legendary producer behind the board for such iconic past RHCP albums as 1991’s Blood Sugar Sex Magik and 1999’s Californication.

Unlimited Love and Return Of The Dream Canteen are the first RHCP albums to feature guitarist John Frusciante since 2006’s Stadium Arcadium. Frusciante rejoined the band late in 2019. The current Chili Peppers lineup consisting of John Frusciante, frontman Anthony Kiedis, bassist Flea and drummer Chad Smith are currently on the road for a North American leg of their world tour.

Smith discussed the new album and “Tippa My Tongue” during a recent appearance on Apple Music 1’s ALT CTRL Radio, stating:

We’re just so happy to be making music again. Like most people, and creative people, and artists, to be able to have that opportunity to go out and play concerts and play new music. We wrote a lot of songs during the pandemic time and we recorded them all. We just wanted this next record to be an extension of ‘Unlimited Love’. It stands on its own. We felt like we had so many songs that we love that we just need to have them all come out, and we don’t want to put them all out at once. Here’s the second batch and it’s just as important. And just as effervescent to use your word, and joyful and happy. The cool thing about our band is one of the things I think is kind of whatever we do, it sounds like the Chili Peppers. You got Anthony’s voice, is so identifiable. And then you got the band, which has a unique sound. Of course, having John Frusciante back in our band again, we’ve got that chemistry going and we just want to share it with everybody. I told Anthony, I said, often you try to figure out which song is the first one to come out off the record. I just said this one’s got more hooks than a fishing tackle box. It’s got some Hendrixy riffs, and it’s got some P-Funk and it’s got Chili Peppers. I love it. I just think it’s a great song.
