One Hot Minute
Red Hot Chili Peppers
- Warner Bros. Records
One Hot Minute is the sixth studio album by American rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers, released Sept. 12, 1995 by Warner Bros. Records.
The worldwide success of the band's previous album Blood Sugar Sex Magik (1991) caused guitarist John Frusciante to become uncomfortable with the band's popularity, eventually quitting mid-tour in 1992. Vocalist Anthony Kiedis, who'd resumed addictions to cocaine and heroin in 1994 after being sober for more than five years, approached his lyricism with a reflective outlook on drugs and their harsh effects. It's the only studio album to feature Dave Navarro as the band's guitarist; Navarro joined the band in 1993 after a series of short-term replacements for Frusciante. The album was produced by Rick Rubin, who'd produced the band's previous album.
