Santana - Africa Speaks (CD/Vinyl) Out Now7 Jun 2019
"Africa Speaks" is Santana's 25th studio album and 39th album overall. Recorded in just 10 days with Rick Rubin at the helm, the album is heavily inspired by African music while also being reminiscent of early albums like 1970's Abraxas. The album features guest vocals by Spanish singer Buika, who Santana himself describes as "a combination of Nina Simone, Etta James, Tina, Aretha—but she doesn’t sound like them.” The album has been widely praised by critics, being called "raw and powerful" and "one of his most groundbreaking albums yet."
