Flea Helen Burns EP on 180g LP
6-Song Solo EP from the Red Hot Chili Pepper Bassist!
The Helen Burns EP was originally 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 be 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 of the EP, according to Flea, comes from a character in the 1847 novel Jane Eyre.
Flea explains "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 experiences of my life". All songs were produced and written by Flea, except "Helen Burns," which was co-written with Patti Smith. Featuring performances by founding RHCP drummer, Jack Irons; current drummer, Chad Smith; and Patti Smith. 180g vinyl pressed in Europe.
