Debut Album From Red Hot Chili Peppers Bassist, Flea, On 180g Vinyl!

Flea has released the album "Helen Burns" in an effort to raise money for The Silverlake Conservatory of Music a community based non profit music school that he is an integral part of.

Helen Burns is a six song EP by Flea, bassist from Red Hot Chili Peppers, which was initially released July 19, 2012 in a very limited run exclusively through the Silverlake Conservatory of Music website. The EP marks the first solo release by Flea who has previously only released solo work on soundtracks. The EP is almost all instrumental except for an appearance by Patti Smith on the title track and a choir on the final track.

While nearly the entire album is experimental instrumentals, at times bordering on the jazz/funk genre, the final track, "Lovelovelove", features a beautiful choir performance near the end that is a pleasure to hear. Definitely not something one would expect to find on an album by a former RHCP member.

The EP was recorded in 2007 by Flea and Chris Warren, drum technician and keyboard player for the Chili Peppers. Flea said he had no plans for the album to e anything but to just record it in the back room at his house following a long Chili Peppers tour and as a way for Warren to learn how to be a sound engineer. The title for the EP, according to Flea, comes from a character in the 1847 novel Jane Eyre. Flea said "the beauty of Helen Burns is a quality I look for in all human beings. Burns is always someone who is present with me and whose highest ideals resonate in the deepest experience of my life."

All songs were produced and written by Flea, except "Helen Burns" which was co-written with Patti Smith.
