Santana has dropped a new single “Los Invisibles." The track is the lead release from the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer's new album Africa Speaks, which will hit shelves in late spring 2019 via Concord.
The 10-time Grammy winner debuted the song on March 18 via Twitter ahead of the launch of The Global Consciousness Tour, which kicks off March 19, in Puebla, Mexico
at Acropolis Puebla. The new single and album were helmed by legendary producer Rick Rubin and evolved from the same ten-day session, which spawned Santana's recent EP “In Search of Mona Lisa,” which was released on Jan. 25 via Concord.
“Los Invisibles” features vocals from Spanish vocalist Buika, who shares singing duties on Africa Speaks along with British singer-songwriter Laura Mvula. The new album will be Carlos Santana and company's first new studio effort since his 2017 collaborative studio album with the Isley Brothers on Power of Peace.
“Los Invisibles” is available to order here in digital and streaming formats. Fans can check out the official audio for "Los Invisibles" above.
A vinyl edition of “In Search of Mona Lisa” was released Feb. 22 via Concord. The new EP is available here in a variety of bundles in CD and vinyl formats.
Following road dates in Mexico, Santana will launch the U.S. leg of The Global Consciousness Tour on April 18 in St. Petersburg, FL, at Al Lang Stadium. Following the tour wrap up on April 28 in Rogers, AR, at The Walmart Amp, the multi-platinum seller will make a triumphant return to Sin City for a spring residency in Sin City, which runs between May 15 through May 25 in Las Vegas at The House of Blues at Mandalay Bay.
The Vegas run will be followed by a U.S. summer tour with Doobie Brothers, which will be in support of the 20th anniversary of Supernatural Now. The big double bill will kick off June 22 in Phoenix at Ak-Chin Pavilion and include a huge show July 11 in Kansas City, MO, at Sprint Center, before wrapping up Aug. 25 in Wantagh, NY, at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater.
