The Elephants of Mars is a new studio album from guitarist Joe Satriani, his 19th studio album to date and the result of Satriani and his band really letting loose in the studio without limitations:

“We did everything. We tried the craziest ideas. And we entertained every notion we had about turning something backwards, upside down, seeing what could happen.”

The pandemic actually afforded such freedom, without the limitations that would otherwise normally be in place at a standard studio and under a strict recording schedule. The result is a fully fleshed-out creative statement from “Satch” and company.

Announced a while back, it was previewed with “Sahara,” and a video directed by Joe’s son, ZZ:

The guitarist remains in his element throughout, and it’s a strong hsowcase of his still-unmatched skills on the guitar (and beyond).

Give it a listen below.
