The iTunes Store is giving away the Red Hot Chili Peppers' latest album for free, in a manner of speaking. iTunes is serving up a stream of the entire album for free, and accepting pre-orders for the disc, which will be released on August 30 [iTunes].
We can't remember Apple offering up an entire album via streaming before. It's likely that RHCP's record label is paying a hefty price to Apple for this promotion and its prominent placement on the iTunes Store front page.

We know you're just angry because they're not doing this with any Justin Bieber albums.
I know, when I read that he had left the band again I was disappointed too. They really shined with him. I just hope he doesn't revert back to his old ways. I saw a documentary on him and he was so strung out on heroin and totally out of his mind. It brings a tear to my eye every time I see it because I'm thinking we were SO close to losing this guy forever..but he pulled himself out of his spiral and returning to the band really helped.
Again, disappointed that he's not on this album, but, I'll wait to pass judgement.
