Hear Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Super-Smooth New Song ‘The Getaway’

Rock stalwarts Red Hot Chili Peppers have shared the super-smooth title track from their upcoming 11th studio album, The Getaway, which is due out in June.

The song The Getaway, which (of course) mentions the state of California in its lyrics, packs some glassy and jittery guitars, tight grooves, some electronic percussion and pretty much laid-back vibes all round. Stream the new track in full alongside its lyrics, below.

The Getaway is the second song to be lifted from the Chili’s forthcoming new album, arriving after the Dark Necessities dropped earlier this month as the group’s first new song in five years.

The album The Getaway is set for release on 17th June, featuring 13 new songs which the band have recently started to play live. The record was produced by Danger Mouse and mixed by Radiohead’s longtime producer Nigel Godrich.

Red Hot Chili Peppers – The Getaway Lyrics

That’s right you’re right

We will do our thing tonight alright

Take me through the future

It’s time you’re fine

Just another color coded crime

Incision and a suture

You told my friend

We would get it on no matter when

A supercavitation

Let’s go you show

Me something no one will ever know

A love hallucination

Another lonely superstar

To get away inside your car

Take it much too far

Surrender to the brave inside

A lover that another tried

Take it, too my ride

You don’t have to keep it if it’s mine

(Another lonely superstar to getaway inside your car)

Another place maybe another time

(Surrender to the brave inside a lover that another tried)

Complete repeat

Sitting in your car and on your street

Lost in California

Let’s steal this wheel

Take a spin to find out how we feel

Just around the corner

Slow down for sound

Turn it up and no we can’t be found

The body that we transcend

Asleep, you weep

Find out that the trick is never cheap

A melancholy girlfriend

Another lonely superstar

To get away inside your car

Take it much too far

Surrender to the brave inside

A lover that another tried

Take it, too my ride

You don’t have to keep it if it’s mine

(Another lonely superstar to getaway inside your car)

Another place maybe another time

(Surrender to the brave inside a lover that another tried)

That’s right you’re right

We will do our thing tonight, alright

Drive the constellation

It’s time you’re fine

Just another color coded crime

The song is fascination

Another lonely superstar

To get away inside your car

Take it much too far

Surrender to the brave inside

The lover that another tried

Take it, too my ride

A May December might not be so smart

(Another lonely superstar to getaway inside your car)

Arrivals that we wish would not depart

(Surrender to the brave inside a lover that another tried)

Don’t be late cause you’re my savior

Make it great whatever stays

Golden gate my rearranger

Hold my name inside your rays
