Legendary guitarist Carlos Santana has a new global recordings deal with BMG, it was announced on Wednesday. His first release under the new deal will be Blessings and Miracles, his star-studded new studio album that does not have a release date yet, though its lead single is expected at some point in August.

Said Santana regarding his new deal in a statement:

“I am honored to partner with BMG to release Blessings and Miracles. I would like to thank everyone at BMG for sharing our collective commonality-vision to touch people’s hearts with energy, conviction and integrity. Now more than ever, we need songs and melodies to remind us that we are significant, meaningful and that life is full of blessings and miracles.”

Thomas Scherer, BMG President Repertoire & Marketing, Los Angeles and New York, said: “We are honored to welcome the transcendent Carlos Santana and his team to BMG. Santana’s sound is a universal language with his guitar resonating deep inside your core. Listening to and feeling this album is an embrace of the source from where we all come from. Blessings and Miracles is full of joy, and we are grateful to be his partner in spreading this musical treasure to his fans and new fans everywhere around the world.”
