The surprise announcement of the band's forthcoming album was made when they played Denver’s Empower Field as part of their North American tour dates to a rapturous response from the crowd.

Return of the Dream Canteen marks the band’s second Rick Rubin-produced album of the year, following Unlimited Love, which was only released on 1st April 2022.

Red Hot Chili Peppers said of the new recording "We went in search of ourselves as the band that we have somehow always been. Just for the fun of it we jammed and learned some old songs. Before long we started the mysterious process of building new songs. A beautiful bit of chemistry meddling that had befriended us hundreds of times along the way. Once we found that slip stream of sound and vision, we just kept mining."

They added: "With time turned into an elastic waist band of oversized underwear, we had no reason to stop writing and rocking. It felt like a dream. When all was said and done, our moody love for each other and the magic of music had gifted us with more songs than we knew what to do with. Well we figured it out. 2 double albums released back to back. The second of which is easily as meaningful as the first or should that be reversed. 'Return of the Dream Canteen' is everything we are and ever dreamed of being. It’s packed. Made with the blood of our hearts, yours truly, the Red Hot Chili Peppers".
