The Getaway has finally gotten here.

Red Hot Chili Peppers’ latest album is now available in stores and online today worldwide.  In anticipation of the album’s release, the band debuted the video for its new single ‘Dark Necessities’ yesterday.  The video, directed by Olivia Wilde, can be viewed online now here.  Wilde had a chance to sit down and discuss working with the band on the video and had only positive remarks about the filming process.  “It was an honor and a thrill to create this video with such wonderful artists,” she said, “who happen to make up one of the greatest bands of all time.”  The video features appearances by renowned long board surfers Carmen Shafer, Amanda Caloia, Amanda Powell, and Noelle Mulligan.

Along with its new video premiere, the band also made an appearance on CBS’ Late Late Show With James Corden earlier this week.  The band took part in the show’s “Carpool Karaoke” segment in which it performed some of its own classic hits, new music, and more.  Audiences can view that appearance online now here.
