Former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist Josh Klinghoffer has released a new song featuring one half of the band’s original lineup.

The track, which Klinghoffer recorded under his solo moniker Pluralone, is called “Nowhere I Am,” and it features Flea on bass and Jack Irons on drums. You can listen to it now streaming via

Both Flea and Irons were among the co-founders of RHCP, along with frontman Anthony Kiedis and guitarist Hillel Slovak.

Flea and Kiedis, of course, are still in the band; current-day drummer Chad Smith joined in 1988, while longtime on-again-off-again guitarist John Frusciante returned to the group late last year, replacing Klinghoffer, who’d been a member since 2009.

Klinghoffer, meanwhile, popped up during Pearl Jam‘s performance of their single “Dance of the Clairvoyants” during the All in WA virtual benefit show last week.
