Red Hot Chili Peppers: Piano is behind the new music
Such has been the success of this new approach that they believe they could have quite easily put out a double album, even a triple album.
Instead they've managed to tighten that down to just one album.
The highly-anticipated record, entitled I'm With You, is due out at the end of the month.
Flea, the band's bass player, said that during their break from making music as an outfit, he went back to university to learn how to play the piano, jazz trumpet as well as learning about music theory and composition.
The flame-haired guitarist said: "I wrote music on piano which is a different approach for us. I didn't play piano much before but on this record I composed on the piano and so did Josh.
"When you write on the piano, you write rhythm, bass and harmony and reinterpret it with a rock band."
The Red Hot Chili Peppers have been rocking the music scene since forming in 1983.
