RHCP’s New Song “Not the One” Is a Fluffy Dreamscape

0

As they get closer to the release of their Unlimited love album, Red Hot Chili Peppers just released “Not the One”, a dreamy ballad that will leave you wondering how to get off the cloud you are now floating on.

“Flea had assembled a drum machine and a bass song in his cobwebbed garage. It wasn’t what you hear today for ‘Not The One,’ because the bridge was the verse and the chorus was the bridge, and it was completely reversed,” vocalist Anthony Kiedis told Zane Lowe in an interview on Apple Music 1.

“Every day after band practice, I go home and listen to what we did that day over and over and over and over again hoping it triggers something or I hear the right melody or something. thing, anything,” he continued, “In this case, I started hearing that whole song on the way back, but completely reversed from how he had arranged it. “

When you start something, you kinda marry it,” he confessed and detailed, “I came the next day and said, ‘Flea, I know that’s not what you had in mind, but is it all right if I sing the verse on the chorus and the chorus on the bridge?’ He’s like, ‘Yeah, do whatever you want.’ I was like, ‘Really?’ He’s like, ‘Yeah, yeah, whatever.'”

The level of mutual respect between the two was even more apparent when Kiedis added, “Because he wrote a beautiful thing, I thought maybe he wanted to keep it as it was written. That day He was so supportive and it was super helpful. I think I was going through a very lonely and introspective month. This idea came from I think I know who you are, but maybe I don’t. You think you know who I am but maybe you don’t and especially in intimate relationships as we know we all come up with something and people always have an idea but what what would happen if we just showed our worst from the start?”

Red Hot Chili Peppers, “Not the One” lyrics

I’m not the person you thought I was
I’m not who you thought you knew
I do almost anything to make you think I’m the only one
I do everything to reach you
You saw me as the perfect compliment
You think I’m someone to choose
You see me in a way that makes me wanna be in bed
A person that I could become

Give me love and I’ll tell you when I want to come
Give me love and I’ll tell you when I feel like running
Blue strides are calling and I can’t stop falling
Give me love and I’ll tell you when I wanna run

I don’t look like myself in the photos
Long days of time have been wicked
I miss you, the one who makes me want to redefine
I’m not the one you fell into
I’m not the one, the one for you

Give me love and I’ll tell you when I want to come
Give me love and I’ll tell you when I feel like running
Blue strides are calling and I can’t stop falling
Give me love and I’ll tell you when I feel like running

Give me love and I’ll tell you when I want to come
Give me love and I’ll tell you when I feel like running
Blue strides are calling and I can’t stop falling
Give me love and I’ll tell you when I feel like running
