"ΛΙΓΟ ΑΠ'ΟΛΑ Ο ΝΕΟΣ ΔΙΣΚΟΣ"
In order to preview I’m With You, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith spoke to ARTISTdirect.com editor and Dolor author Rick Florino in this exclusive interview. He discusses the album, capturing energy, rebirth, what the cinematic equivalent of I’m With You is and more.
Did you have one overall vision for I’m With You before entering the studio?
We don’t really have a vision when we start out. Our vision is, “Let’s get together, play, and see what happens. Let’s write some great music.” Going into an album, we never have any pre-conceived notions of what it’s going to be. It just happens organically. Obviously, Josh Klinghoffer joined our group, and we knew it was going to be quite different. We just want to be honest and open and play from our hearts. Every time we go in to make a record, that’s what we do. That wasn’t any different this time. Having Josh was the big change. He did a great job and wrote great music with us. We couldn’t have asked for a better person to play music with.
With all of your albums, you capture a real visceral energy within these beautifully catchy songs. It feels like it’s planned out after the fact, but it naturally generates from the four of you.
