The French music duo's record company has now denied recent reports claiming that the duo will be producing the funk rockers' new album.
Recent news that recently emerged in the press stating that French music duo Justice will be handling the production of Red Hot Chili Peppers' new album, has now been denied. The denial comes directly from the dance music duo's label Ed Banger Records.
The label's boss Pedro Winter speaks to the press saying that his artist has no plan to do any collaboration with the funk rockers. However in his statement he did admit that Red Hot's vocalist Anthony Kiedis is indeed a big fan of Justice.
Pedro also stated that the real truth is that Kiedis only wanted to ask Justice to play in a festival that the Red Hot frontman was creating but not to produce the band's record. "I was recently in touch with Anthony Kiedis by phone. He wanted Justice to perform at a festival he's curating in the US," Pedro said.
The label's chief then added that the rumors sparked for the first time after the press spotted Anthony wearing Justice's T-Shirt at a basketball game in L.A. Explaining about it Pedro said, "I sent him some Ed Banger goodies and last week we discovered this amazing photo of him and Diddy at a Lakers game."
Previously, there have been reports circulating in the press claiming that Red Hot will tap Justice to produce their new record. Moreover, the press also claimed that the news was announced by an important person in Ed Banger Records, Busy P.
