We’re continuing our run of episodes celebrating the release of the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ new album, Unlimited Love, produced by Rick Rubin. We left off our episode last week with Anthony Kiedis popping into the podcast to join Rick’s conversation with Chili Peppers’ guitarist John Frusciante. Today we have part two of Rick’s conversation with John and the band’s iconic frontman.

On this episode we’ll hear Anthony talk about how some of the new song lyrics came together, the lengths he went to commute to the studio in Hawaii where he was recording vocals with Rick. And both Anthony and John give their accounts of John’s third return to the band.

Make sure to check out Rick’s interview next week with the almighty Flea. And hear a playlist of all of our favorite Red Hot Chili Peppers songs here.
