Feb. 18 — Famed guitar virtuoso Joe Satriani unveiled the visualizer for his new single this week.

Satriani debuted the video for his new single, ‘Faceless’ Friday. ‘Faceless’ is the second single from Satriani’s forthcoming album, The Elephants of Mars, which is scheduled for release April 8 through a partnership between Satriani’s own new independent label and earMusic. Pre-orders are open. Satriani premiered the album’s lead single, ‘Sahara‘ last month.

‘Faceless’ is vastly different from ‘Sahara.’ Where ‘Sahara’ boasts an infectious groove along the lines of works from his 2004 album, Is There Love In Space?, ‘Faceless’ is more reserved and subtle. The controlled use of the piano line, bass, and drums alongside Satriani’s performance on guitar proves that less really is more.

The track listing for The Elephants of Mars is noted below.

1.         Sahara                                                  8. E 104th St NYC
2.         The Elephants of Mars                          9. Pumpin’
3.         Faceless                                              10. Dance of the Spores
4.         Blue Foot Groovy                                 11. Night Scene
5.         Tension and Release                           12. Through a Mother’s Day Darkly
6.         Sailing the Seas of Ganymede            13. 22 Memory Lane
7.         Doors of Perception                             14. Desolation

Joe Satriani released the third issue of his limited edition graphic novel, Crystal Planet in August. The graphic novel series is based on his 1998 album by the same name. The Elephants of Mars will be Satriani’s 19th album and will come less than two years after the release of his most recent album, Shapeshifting, which was released April 10, 2020 through Sony Music.
