Joe Satriani has shared an animated video for his song “Yesterday’s Yesterday.” This track is from his latest album “Shapeshifting.”
Satriani’s son ZZ Satriani directed the clip and he had the following to say about it:
“First off, it was a fun challenge during these strange times of quarantine. We live in different cities, so Joe had to set up the lights, green screen, and camera, and film the video on his own. Once I put together the footage, I knew I had to add a little more character to the video. I tend to include my own artwork in my videos, and since the song is so cheerful, I figured why not paint each frame, add even more vibrancy to the whole project.”
“ZZ’s artwork, animation and editing really shine here. His introduction of ‘Joe Satriani’s Shapeshifting Club’ at the top of the video is a brilliant story telling device that invites us into a world where we can playfully shift into any shape we want. It’s also a subtle nod to the ‘Shapeshifting’ album from which the song comes. The original recording features special guest performances by Lisa Coleman (Prince, The Revolution) on piano and Christopher Guest on mandolin.”
“Each time I watch this video I find myself stopping at every frame to marvel at all the crazy morphing that plays out over the whole song. I’m hoping ZZ puts all the shape-shifted drawings together in a book soon!”
Joe Satriani has shared a bonus track from the sessions for his latest album “Shapeshifting.” The song is titled “When Trees Walked The Earth” and it can be streamed below. Satriani told Relix the following:
“What music would giant, walking Redwoods be listening to when they would pick and move up and down the West Coast in search of a new home? That’s what got me started on the song ‘When Trees Walked The Earth.’ It’s the soundtrack to an eco-sci-fi film idea.”
