Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea has described the band's new album as "very dynamic".

The Californian four-piece will release their tenth studio album I'm With You on August 29, with Flea - real name Michael Balzary - explaining that the record contains a mixture of different moods.

"I love our new record. I feel very excited and hopeful that the music will touch the hearts of people listening to the record and seeing it live," he told Spinner.

"It's very dynamic music; it covers a real wide range of emotions and it's exciting. You can dance to it, you can bang your f**king head like an animal to it. It's just beautiful."

Speaking about the band's new guitarist Josh Klinghoffer, Balzary stated: "Josh is a very subtle musician and it's not so much about the big riff - it's more subtle, sublime, texture type of playing.

"And the big difference is I started writing songs on piano for this record and Josh also wrote songs on piano, so a lot of the songs were written on the piano and then translated to [the] rock band."

He added: "It has a different kind of feeling, kind of more of a liquid, poetic feeling is the best way I can describe it."

The group will precede the album's release with new single 'The Adventures Of Raindance Maggie' on July 18.
