Joe Satriani kicks it up a notch on new track Energy

Joe Satriani releases his new high-tempo track Energy - from upcoming album What Happens Next

Joe Satriani has released an audio stream of his new track Energy.

The song will feature on Satch’s upcoming 16th solo album What Happens Next, which will launch on January 12 via Sony/Legacy.

The guitar virtuoso is joined on the new record by his Chickenfoot bandmate and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith along with Black Country Communion mainman and bassist Glenn Hughes.

Satriani tells Guitar World: “Energy shows the power, fun and excitement of true and spontaneous musical chemistry. Chad, Glenn and me rockin’ out, not holding back, revelling in the moment.”

He goes on to say that his focus on the new record was to write tracks “about a human being, two feet on the ground, heart pumping, with emotions, dreams and hopes.”

Satriani adds: “I said to Chad in an early text, ‘No odd time signatures, no progressive stuff, pure rock and soul.’

“The last two records really showed that I was enjoying playing with progressive elements, and when I reached the end of Shockwave Supernova, I said, ‘I think I’ve done it. For some reason, I don’t feel like going back over that any more.’”

Last week, Satch announced that he’d head out on the road on his G3 tour across North America early next year, where he’ll be joined by Dream Theater’s John Petrucci and Def Leppard’s Phil Collen.
