Red Hot Chili Peppers Share New Song ‘Eddie’

    Red Hot Chili Peppers have shared the new single ‘Eddie’, which is a tribute to the late Eddie Van Halen. It’s the second single from the band’s upcoming album Return of the Dream Canteen, following previous cut ‘Tippa My Tongue’. Check it out below.

    “Sometimes we don’t realize how deeply affected and connected we are to artists until the day they die,” Anthony Kiedis said of the song in a statement. “Eddie Van Halen was a one of a kind. The day after his death Flea came into rehearsal with an emotional bassline. John, Chad and I started playing along and pretty soon with all our hearts, a song in his honor effortlessly unfolded. It felt good to be sad and care so much about a person who had given so much to our lives. Although the song doesn’t speak to Eddie by name, it talks about his early days on the Sunset Strip and the rock n roll tapestry that Van Halen painted on our minds. In the end, our song asks that you not remember Eddie for dying but for living his wildest dream.”

    Return of the Dream Canteen is the Chili Peppers’ second LP of 2022, following April’s Unlimited Love. It’s out October 14.
