  • Renaissance
    Currently unreleased, but alluded to by Josh and teased live.

In a video for Inside The Mix, Andrew Scheps states that the band tracked fifty songs during the I’m With You sessions: “Not just basic tracks of fifty songs, actually almost finished recording fifty songs, including final lead vocals.” That means there are over twenty “almost finished” songs yet to be heard.


  • Look Around - Rock Band DLC
    On the Rock Band DLC, the recording of Look Around contains its original intro - which is also played live by the band (which Josh will sometimes incorporate some interesting teases into).

  • Ethiopia - Unreleased
    Prior to release, Ethiopia had a saxophone solo performed by Joshua Redman, most likely during the bridge. This was either deleted or the song was edited down.
