Guitar legend JOE SATRIANI has released a behind the scenes video looking at the recording of his 14th studio album, Unstoppable Momentum, which was released today (May 7th) through Epic Records. Check out the behind the scenes video below:

Unstoppable Momentum was recorded at Skywalker Sound in the Bay Area and produced by Satriani and Mike Fraser (AC/DC). The album features an amazing array of talented players including: Vinnie Colauita (STING, JEFF BECK) on drums, Chris Chaney (JANE'S ADDICTION) on bass and on keyboards, Mike Keneally (DETHKLOK).

Eleven songs were selected to record, all “heading in different directions and touching on a variety of musical influences.” With that in mind, Satriani decided to assemble a new studio band. “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.”

Unstoppable Momentum tracklisting:

'Unstoppable Momentum'

'Can’t Go Back'

'Lies And Truths'

'Three Sheets To The Wind'

'I’ll Put A Stone On Your Cairn'

'A Door Into Summer'

'Shine On American Dreamer'

'Jumpin’ Out'
