Joe Satriani Reveals Tracklist, Cover Art for Album
Satriani completed writing the album after a series of dates with Chickenfoot and then as part of the G3 tour through South America last fall.
"A very prolific and cathartic two months followed," he says. "Resulting in a bundle of new music I was very excited to get recorded." Satriani emerged with 11 new songs, all "heading in different directions and touching on a variety of musical influences."
'Unstoppable Momentum,' co-produced by Satriani and Mike Fraser (AC/DC), includes guest appearances by keyboardist Mike Keneally (Frank Zappa, Dethklok), drummer Vinnie Colauita (Jeff Beck, Sting) and bassist Chris Chaney (Jane's Addiction).
"The idea was to crank up the energy level of the sessions, and allow for more individual expression of the material from each player," Satriani added. "The chemistry with Mike, Chris and Vinnie was fantastic and we blazed through all of the tracks with everyone laying down amazing performances."
