SOME STUFFS: Santana goes back to an instrumental vibe with new album, ready to hit the road this summer
With a new album that debuted at #16 on Billboard‘s Albums chart, Carlos Santana proves that he is not ready to rest just yet. Santana‘s new album, Shape Shifter (Starfaith), was released last week and fans immediately responded by buying the brand new 13-song album that marks his return to instrumental nirvana. In truth, all but one song are instrumentals, and for fans who have been waiting for him to “get back” to the wizardry he is known for, well, the chart position is the proof.
With a new album comes a tour, and after these shows, he will be doing a co-headling tour with The Allman Brothers Band.
