JOE SATRIANI is kicking off the new year with a brand-new album. Set for release on April 8, 2022, “The Elephants of Mars” marks the legendary guitarist’s 19th studio album in his 35+ year career in music.
This album also marks the debut of his new label partnership with earMUSIC, the international rock label of entertainment group Edel.
Joe Satriani had an admirably productive workingman’s holiday, with pandemic forced time away from the road, that ultimately gave him and his touring band, all recording remotely in separate areas of the world during lockdown, the ability to deliver an album length journey that never dulls. "The Elephants of Mars" crackles with an exciting new energy, briskly traveling through stylistic roads that feel freshly updated, viewed through new eyes.
The guitarist challenged himself to create a “new standard” for instrumental guitar albums to be measured against, one which would work from “a new platform of his own design,” as he terms it. “I want to show people that an instrumental guitar album can contain far more creative and entertaining elements than I think people are using right now.”
