The tenth full-length studio album by legendary American Alternative/Funk Rock band.
Produced by Rick Rubin, "I'm With You" was the band's first album to feature guitarist Josh Klinghoffer, following the departure of John Frusciante in 2009. It is also the final collaboration between Red Hot Chili Peppers and producer Rubin, whose relationship began with their fifth studio album "Blood Sugar Sex Magik" (1991).
"I'm with You" was claimed to be the first album specially mastered to optimize digital sound quality for iTunes Store customers, who purchase the album through iTunes. The album was mastered using high-resolution sourced audio. Despite this, the mastering has been deemed extremely loud and over-compressed and therefore distorted, continuing the trend since "One Hot Minute".
The album received mostly favorable reviews, with many praising newcomer Josh Klinghoffer for breathing new life into the veteran band. It featured four singles, including alternative number-one hit, "The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie", "Monarchy of Roses", "Look Around" and "Brendan's Death Song". "Did I Let You Know" was released exclusively in Brazil thanks to response from a poll voted on by the fans, though it was not considered a proper single.
In the United States, "I'm With You" debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 with 229,000 copies sold in its first week. The album entered the UK Albums Chart at number one on the strength of 71,000 units, becoming the band's fourth number one effort in the United Kingdom. With a tally of 28,000, the record opened on the Canadian Albums Chart at number two.
In total, the album made its debut at number one in 18 countries.
A Rolling Stone Reader's Poll named "I'm With You" the 8th best album of 2011, and the album was also nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Rock Album.
