The Red Hot Chili Peppers have released an animated video for their track Sick Love.

It’s taken from recent album The Getaway, which was launched in June.

Frontman Anthony Kiedis said before the release that they’d scrapped the record they’d been working on after hiring producer Danger Mouse to finish the follow-up to 2012’s I’m With You.

Kiedis reported: “We wrote 20 to 30 songs and it was all ready to go. Danger Mouse emerged and said, ‘Let’s go make a record.’ We were like, ‘Great, we have all these songs!’

“He was like, ‘Leave those there. Let’s go write new songs in the studio.’ So the process began over again.

“The only way we saw this working was to trust him – get rid of our old ideas and our old way of doing things.”

The band are currently touring the UK, with European and North American dates to follow.
