Carlos Santana talks about upcoming album and all-star collaborations


Carlos Santana is starting to talk about his upcoming album – as yet untitled – as its September release date nears. The album is a collection of all-star collaborations on a collection of iconic rock songs from artists such as the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, AC/DC, and Led Zeppelin among others.

While the tracklist is still being finalized, Billboard reports that recording sessions included Santana reuniting with “Smooth” partner Rob Thomas on Cream’s “Sunshine of Your Love” and working with Joe Cocker on Jimi Hendrix’s “Little Wing,” Scott Weiland on the Rolling Stones’ “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking,” Chris Daughtry on Def Leppard’s “Photograph,”Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell on Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love,” Papa Roach’s Jacoby Shaddix on Deep Purple’s “Smoke on the Water,” India.Arie and Yo Yo Ma on the Beatles’ “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” and Nas, who lays down rhymes on AC/DC’s “Back in Black.”

In the Billboard interview Santana admitted he had to be coerced into taking on the project initially by Sony music Chief Clive Davis because he felt the project was so challenging. Ultimately, Santana chose half of the songs for the album while Davis picked the other half.

Santana said he plans to preview some of the covers during his tour that starts next week, June 30 with Steve Winwood in St. Paul, Minn.

Do you think Santana’s new album sounds like a winner? Do you like hearing “classic” rock songs redone?
