Carlos Santana Releases Cover Of Procol Harum’s “Whiter Shade Of Pale” Featuring Steve Winwood

Carlos Santana has shared his cover of Procol Harum’s “Whiter Shade Of Pale.” This track features Steve Winwood and it will appear on Santana’s new album “Blessings And Miracles,” which is set to be released on October 15.

Santana said he recruited Winwood for the track following a show in London’s Hyde Park:

“I said, ‘You and I have to do it, but we’re going to do it very sexy, like a Hare Krishna but with congas.’ I played the components in his ear, and he said, ‘I hear it, Carlos. You’re right.’ So that’s what we did – it’s Santana, Cuban, Puerto Rican in an African way. And man, you talk about sexy. Steve’s voice is so sexy and beautiful.”

Winwood added:

“Carlos has been doing what I’ve been trying to do for the last 50 years, namely combining elements of rock, jazz, folk, and Latin Afro-Caribbean music. Carlos’ genius comes in large part from a wonderful combination of rock music with Latin-Cuban rhythms. I’ve played with Carlos on numerous occasions over the past fifty years and I’m very excited to be working with him again still.”
