Shape Shifter is Carlos Santana's 36th album, and the first for his new label, Starfaith Records.
Set for release on May 14th, the 13-song set is an instrumental tour de force featuring tracks spanning from the late 1990's to the present. It is powered throughout by Carlos' instantly recognizable virtuoso lead guitar and the Santana Band's world-class musicianship (only one song features vocals from Santana's lead vocalists Andy Vargas and Tony Lindsay).
Carlos dedicated the album to Native American Indians, acknowledging Australia's 2008 apology to the Aboriginals, and President Obama's signing of the 2009 Native American Apology Resolution. He says, "I encourage any and all countries (that have not as yet done so) to acknowledge the first people of their land, and make this a collective global effort."
