Carlos Santana says he will record a new album with Eric Clapton and Derek Trucks:

“Nothing will be geared up to radio or radio-friendly commerciality. In a way, I’m picturing something like a soundtrack. Perhaps in the vein of an Ennio Morricone score for an imaginary spaghetti western – The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, that kind of thing, you know? I talked about this with Eric Clapton and Derek Trucks, and that is something we will be working on together in the near future. We aren’t going to be concerned about songs. It will be more about moods.” The guitarist didn’t said nothing more about his new work.

In his latest album, Santana worked with names like Rob Thomas, Chris Stapleton, G-Eazy, Diane Warren, Steve Winwood, Chick Corea, Rick Rubin, Corey Glover, Kirk Hammett, Ally Brooke, American Authors and Narada Michael Walden and more.

Eric Clapton polemics

Since last year Clapton is against lockdowns to prevent the Covid-19 outbreak and even recorded a song about the matter with Van Morrison. The guitarist also criticizes the vaccines, even though they are scientifically proven effective in preventing severe cases of the disease. Carlos Santana recently revealed in an interview with Brazilian newspaper O Globo that he only got vaccinated because his daughter said he only could see his grandson if he got vaccinated.

I am a Brazilian journalist, a Classic Rock and Heavy Metal lover. Music has always been part of my life, helped me through tough moments and was with me to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After college I did a postgraduate degree in digital communication. This has helped me to make the website better and bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
