The long-awaited new album by the Red Hot Chili Peppers is tentatively titled
Californication according to the group's official website. Band spokesperson
Gayle Fine confirmed the website's report and added that the album is nearly completed
and scheduled for a June release. "It's not done yet," Fine said, "but it should be finished
in the next few weeks." Fine said the album's songs all were written by the group, which
last year reunited with former guitarist John Frusciante. The album, the funk-rock
group's first since 1995's One Hot Minute, was produced by American Records
head Rick Rubin (Slayer, Beastie Boys).
