Joe Satriani is one of the greatest living guitarists, having proven his track record throughout nearly 40 years. He's not stopping anytime soon, as the maestro has announced his upcoming 16th solo record, What Happens Next, which is out Jan. 12, as well as the 2018 edition of his G3 tour.
What Happens Next features Satriani and an excellent pair of musicians to back him up — Glenn Hughes of Deep Purple and Black Sabbath on bass and Red Hot Chili Peppers‘ Chad Smith on drums. It's the first time Satriani and Smith have worked together since collaborating in the supergroup Chickenfoot with former Van Halen vocalist and bassist Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony. It'll be the perfect backdrop to go into the upcoming G3 tour, where he will be joined by Dream Theater‘s John Petrucci and Def Leppard‘s Phil Collen.
What Happens Next takes Satriani's legendary guitar skills to exciting new heights. The unparalleled rock rhythm section gives What Happens Next a depth of groove that sets it apart from Satriani's other work.
Satriani once again teams up with producer/engineer/mixer Mike Fraser on What Happens Next. Fraser has recorded and mixed every AC/DC album since 1990's The Razors Edge and has been a frequent collaborator with Satriani since the release of Crystal Planet in 1998, producing, engineering or mixing Satriani's solo albums as well as both studio projects by Chickenfoot.
This 12-track album showcases Satriani's gift for constant evolution and reinvention as a bandleader and composer of intricate guitar-driven rock. What Happens Next finds Satriani discovering sounds and textures never before heard from an instrument he has unquestionably mastered over his three-decade solo career.
