LOS ANGELES, CA Tuesday May.9.2006 /netmusiccountdown.com/ -- Red Hot Chili Peppers, Neil Young and Gnarls Barkley are among the artists with new albums out today, May 9th.

Los Angeles funk rockers the Red Hot Chili Peppers return with a new double CD called "Stadium Arcadium," produced by Rick Rubin. The Chili Peppers' ninth studio album contains 28 songs, including the single "Dani California." Rolling Stone called Stadium Arcadium "a late-career triumph that could pass for another, lesser group's greatest-hits collection."

Two influential singer-songwriters -- Neil Young and Paul Simon -- also have new music in stores today. Neil Young's "Living With War" is a protest album reflecting his views on the war in Iraq and American leadership.

Paul Simon's "Surprise" contains 11 songs and is his first release since 2000. Simon worked on "Surprise" with U2 producer Brian Eno, and the album includes contributions from musicians such as Steve Gadd, Herbie Hancock, and Bill Frisell.

If you're in the mood for dancing, you might want to check out "St. Elsewhere," the debut album from soul act Gnarls Barkley. Gnarls Barkley is comprised of the Grammy-nominated Gorillaz producer Danger Mouse and Goodie Mob's Cee-Lo Green. Gnarls Barkley has already scored a No. 1 hit in the UK, where its song, "Crazy," has been at the top of the singles chart for the last six weeks.

Other new releases in stores today include Snow Patrol's "Eyes Open," Chris Isaak's "Best of Chris Isaak," Nick Lachey's "What's Left of Me," Grandaddy's "Just Like the Fambly Cat," and Harry Connick Jr.'s "Harry On Broadway Act 1."
