Unlimited Love serves as the LA funk-rockers follow-up to 2016's The Getaway and their first with former guitarist John Frusciante since 2006's Stadium Arcadium. The 17-track double album is introduced by the meditative lead single "Black Summer." "It's been a long time since I made a new friеnd/ Waitin' on another black summer to end/ It's been a long timе and you never know when/ Waitin' on another black summer to end," Kiedis sings on the track's yearning chorus.

Drummer Chad Smith commented on the direction of the band's twelfth album, "John hasn't been in our group in 10 years. That's a long time. So of course it's going to sound different, but it's going to sound like the four of us because we do have this special chemistry together. It sounds like Red Hot Chili Peppers, but it's different and new, and to me that's great."

John Frusciante adds, "When we got together to start writing material, we began by playing old songs by people like Johnny 'Guitar' Watson, The Kinks, The New York Dolls, Richard Barrett and others. Ever so gradually, we started bringing in new ideas, and turning jams into songs, and after a couple of months the new stuff was all we were playing. The feeling of effortless fun we had when we were playing songs by other people, stayed with us the whole time we were writing. For me, this record represents our love for, and faith in each other."


Exclaims longtime Red Hot Chili Peppers producer Rick Rubin, "Frusciante's back in the band and it's unbelievable. I [was invited to] the first rehearsal after John rejoined the band and it made me cry. It was so thrilling to see that group of people back together because they made such great music for so long together and it really hit me in an emotional way."
