It looks like we could soon be seeing a new album from Red Hot Chili Peppers (and perhaps Radiohead too) as the band have revealed a photo of them mixing the record with Radiohead producer, Nigel Godrich.
The 'Can't Stop' funk-rock giants have been hard at work on the record for over a year, reportedly working with Danger Mouse on production in earlier stages.
Now, drummer Chad Smith seems to suggest that they're in the final stages of finishing the record, Tweeting a photo of work in the studio with Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich, writing: "Started mixing the new record today! @nigelgod at the helm."

Not only is Godrich a member of Atoms For Peace with RHCP bassist Flea, but he is also known as the 'sixth Radiohead member' having worked on all of their albums since 1995's The Bends. Some are hoping that news of him working with the Red Hot Chili Peppers as a sign that Radiohead's new album may indeed be finished - despite the band's artist and collaborator Stanley Donwood saying that while the ninth LP was a 'work of art' and that it 'wasn't done yet'.
Anyway, back to Red Hot Chili Peppers. Having written 30 tracks for the new album, the band said they were entering a 'new era' of their sound. They'll also headline Reading & Leeds Festival, as well as T In The Park this summer.
