According to their guitarist...
In an interview with Noise11, Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist Josh Klinghoffer said that the band has about thirty songs written for their next album, the follow-up to I'm With You. The band currently doesn't have a producer on the album.
On working on the new album: "The Chili Peppers are working every day writing. We have produced a more elaborate demo stage into the writing, at least more than the band has before. Flea owns a really great studio now. I've been recording and writing with the Chili Peppers every day".
On how many songs they've written: "We've written musically 30 songs now. We sort of did this last time, which was my first album. We piled a shitload of stuff on Anthony and he actually came through. He wrote lyrics to 50 songs in the end. We recorded 50 last time. We released an extra 17 that didn't go on the album. We are conscious to not do that again but we are already up to 28 or 30 songs."
On if Rick Rubin may be replaced as producer: "Yeah, yeah, well … that's not even 100% official yet. That is sort of up in the air still. Normally he becomes involved in the arranging process but he hasn't yet been which is good for me. I like it the way we are doing it so far. There has not been an official producer named yet so in the absence of that you never know what could happen".
