Joe Satriani Recruits Glenn Hughes and Chad Smith for New ‘What Happens Next’ Album
Joe Satriani has completed his 16th solo album, titled What Happens Next, and is now prepping for another string of shows on the G3 Tour.
What Happens Next, which is due on Jan. 12, finds guitarist Satriani recording with bassist Glenn Hughes (from Deep Purple and the recently reunited Black Country Communion), and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, who also plays with Satriani in Chickenfoot.
The latest G3 dates will feature Dream Theater's John Petrucci and Def Leppard's Phil Collen. You can find the album's track listing, as well as G3 tour dates, below.
“I could say that I’m surprised at the durability of G3 and how much it’s grown, but in a way I’m not,” Satriani said in a press release. “I think part of its charm and its mojo is in the chemistry of having three top guitarists share what they do on stage. It’s fun, it’s unpredictable, it’s wild, it’s everything you could want in a show.”
A new documentary on Satriani, Beyond the Supernova, is set to debut at the Mill Valley Film Festival in October. The film, shot by Satriani's son ZZ, followed the guitarist's European and Asian tour in support of 2015's Shockwave Supernova.
