Flea’s Debut Solo EP ‘Helen Burns’ Up For Download

Written by Mike Hohnen on July 20, 2012

RHCP bassist Flea has today officially released his highly talked about solo EP. Titled Helen Burns, the release is available for digital download with a ‘name your price’ pricing scheme; it’s sure to be a very interesting listen, but it does come with a warning.

Along with the EP, Flea has issued a statement to fans of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, reinforcing claims that the material is nothing like the Chili’s, but rather “mostly instrumental, weird and arty”. The full statement reads as follows:

“Hi people who like The Red Hot Chili Peppers! I love you a lot! Mucho! Just wanted to give you a heads up about this little record ‘Helen Burns’ I am putting out on the Silverlake Conservatory website,” said Flea. “Warning! It is not a Chili Pepper record. It does not have songs that are like the Chili Peppers at all. It is a mostly instrumental, weird and arty record, the music is mostly just me creating soundscapes that are very emotional for me, but certainly not for everyone! Just me tripping out at home. I am putting it out to raise money for The Silverlake Conservatory of Music, a community based non profit music school that I am an integral part of. There you have it. See you all soon I hope!”

It was announced earlier this week that it would be a charity album to help raise funds for the music school Flea established.

You can get the download right here and literally pay as much as you feel like. There are also details on how to score a signed physical release with bonus: part of a bass string.
