During an interview on Double J Radio channel, John Frusciante reveals upcoming RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS album and his latest “Maya” electronic genre album:

“We were rehearsing for a couple of months and then the quarantine started. And then we stopped rehearsing for a couple of months and then we went back to rehearsing. We are moving ahead with what we are doing and writing new music.

Frusciante also talks about his latest album:

“I think when it started with the synth-pop and hip-hop and stuff, they seemed early, like, simple to me or something, and they didn’t seem very expressive. And little did I suspect as time went by very quickly. People also started getting very expressive with sounds and very expressive in ways that you can’t be expressive on the other instruments. Like, being expressive with samples and building up music with tons of samples all over the place. And that itself is a form of expression – I didn’t expect that at first, I just got on my own path.

When I discovered by the late ’90s it had come so far, there were people being expressive with sound and beats in ways it was impossible to do as a musician. The conception of speed and fast tempos that comes from manipulating samples and using drum machines and stuff. It’s so completely different than what a drummer does.

Metallica is a great example; ‘Master of Puppets’ or whatever is a great example of a human being going fast. But that’s very different from Jungle, which is like a computer going fast.

When I used to go see Chili Peppers that’s how I saw them. This before I was in the band they would play like this fast punk music, this fast, intense punk music. And for me, that’s basically what hardcore and jungle were – it’s just another way of doing fast and kind of going beyond what a drummer was capable of doing. I didn’t realize that synths and samplers and drum machines would outdo real musicians.”
