During a recent interview with Australian Musician, Joe Satriani revealed that he has been working on two new albums during his coronavirus downtime. This includes one instrumental effort and one with vocals.
The guitarist said the following:
“I got it in my head that I wanted to create two separate records in the next few months. One would be another instrumental album, and another would be a vocal-oriented record, but they would be centered around my live band. The unusual nature of that was because the band is so unique, with Kenny Aronoff on drums and Bryan Beller on bass guitar and an Australian phenomenal musician Rai Thistlethwayte on keyboards and guitar, who’s also a fantastic singer.”
Satriani also added that the band “have been texting each other music almost every day.” He continued:
“We’re all on board thinking that remotely we’re gonna build these records over the next number of months. So that’s what we’re doing with this time at home — we’re trying to be as creative as possible.”
