Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea has revealed that the band has enlisted Danger Mouse as the producer for their next album.

“Bout to start recording. Danger Mouse producing….. let’s hang soon,” Flea wrote in a tweet that he has since deleted (via Alternative Nation). The news follows drummer Chad Smith’s recent interview with Rolling Stone, during which he said the upcoming album would be a new direction for the group.

“The new album is shaping up good,” Smith said. “We’ve done the ‘guys get in the room and jam out songs, everybody playing together all at once’ thing. And we wrote a bunch of songs that way. And we’re now going to try another method that will be really challenging for us and will bring new, exciting results for the band.”

“We all have high hopes that it’s going to take off and we’re going to do something very different and unique for the Red Hot Chili Peppers,” he added.

Danger Mouse – a.k.a. Brian Burton – has previously produced albums for Beck, the Black Keys, Portugal. The Man and more.

The Chili Peppers’ next rec0rd is slated for release sometime this year. It will follow their 2011 LP, ‘I’m With You.’
