(Los Angeles, CA) January 19, 2022 – 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. Editions include a special limited digi-pack cd release featuring seven double sided cards of original artwork by Satriani representing each song from the album. In addition, several colored vinyl options will be available including orange, pink and a special purple version sold through Guitar Center only.
First single, “Sahara,” debuted today with a performance video directed by ZZ Satriani.
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 Marscrackles with an exciting new energy, briskly traveling through stylistic roads that feel freshly updated, viewed through new eyes.
