Today is the big day!  The new Red Hot Chili Peppers album, I'm With You, is available! This album is the group’s tenth studio effort, and it was produced by longtime collaborator Rick Rubin.  More after the jump.

The album was recorded partially in the scenic area of Big Sur in the Chili Peppers home state of California. I’m With You is the first album to feature the group’s new guitarist, Josh Klinghoffer, who replaced longtime member John Frusciante.  Here are some interviews from MTV with Rick Rubin, and Anthony Kiedis about the addition of Klinghoffer:
