New Single From Joe Satriani, Faceless



Joe Satriani releases his second single from his forthcoming studio album, The Elephants of Mars.

World-renowned guitarist, Joe Satriani, recently announced the upcoming release of his 19th studio album, The Elephants of Mars, set for release April 8, 2022

New single, “Faceless” shows a melodic, poignant side of the album as Satriani describes, “’Faceless’ is about loneliness. When the person you want to see you for who you really are doesn’t seem to recognize you.” He continues, “It’s also a comment on a society where people are truly knowing each other less and less, being separated by their differences rather than being united for their shared hopes and dreams. The solo section represents one’s true self finally breaking free.”

In 2020 with all time constraints removed, The Elephants of Mars truly represents the album that Satriani himself hoped he could deliver with his band. “We did everything. We tried the craziest ideas. And we entertained every notion we had about turning something backwards, upside down, seeing what could happen.”  Similarly, the creative gates were wide open for all of the musicians to take liberties on the songs for The Elephants of Mars and share a side of themselves they hadn’t previously been able to.

The Elephants of Mars, set for release April 8, 2022 – several colored vinyl options will be available as well to pre-order.
