Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea has opened up about his new super group with Blur/Gorillaz founder Damon Albarn and Fela Kuti's drummer Tony Allen.

The group, called Rocket Juice and the Moon, is currently rehearsing for a run of shows.

Flea recently told Mojo how the project came about:

"We met on a plane in 2008. The three of us were going to Lagos as part of Damon's Africa Express Collective. I'm a huge Fela Kuti fan and Tony [Allen] is one of my favourite drummers, so to get to talk and play with him was phenomenal."

The group's first album is set for release in March and when asked about the direction Allen explained, "it's all funk."

Albarn noted that things fell together smoothly:

"Everything just fell into place. It felt special being in a room together."
