Joe Satriani is wasting no time in 2022 with the upcoming release off his 19th album, The Elephants of Mars.

While the album doesn't come out till April 8th, we've got our first taste of what to expect with the release of the first single 'Sahara'.

Speaking of The Elephants of Mars, Satriani says "About half of the instrumental album is already recorded. And the record that I’m doing with Ned, the full-on vocal album, we’re just trying to complete our last demo. ... It’s gonna take some new partners to help us get it produced properly."

Satriani looked to set a 'new standard' for the intstrumentals.

"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."
