Listen to 'A Door Into Summer' here!
Recorded at Skywalker Sound and produced by Mike Fraser, the album features an eclectic selection of guest stars, including Vinnie Colauita (Sting, Jeff Beck) on drums, Chris Chaney (Jane’s Addiction) on bass and Mike Keneally (Dethklok) on keyboards.
After writing songs which touched on "a variety of musical influences", Satriani made the decision to assemble a new studio band for the recording.
"The idea was to crank up the energy level of the sessions, and allow for more individual expression of the material from each player. The chemistry with Mike, Chris and Vinnie was fantastic and we blazed through all of the tracks with everyone laying down amazing performances."
Satriani begins an extensive European tour in Turkey on May 19, which comes to the UK in June. Scroll down to buy tickets.
The album will hit UK store shelves on 6th May.
