SANTANA SIGNS WITH BMG TO RELEASE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED NEW STUDIO ALBUM

Legendary Grammy award-winning artist and guitarist Carlos Santana has signed a new global recordings deal with BMG to release his star-studded, upcoming full-length studio album Blessings and Miracles. The debut single from the album is expected later this month.

For more than five decades, Carlos Santana has been the visionary force behind genre bending artistry, from the earliest days of his band, Santana, as a ground-breaking Afro-Latin-blues-rock fusion outfit in San Francisco to his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and beyond.

Santana said, “I am honored to partner with BMG to release Blessings and Miracles. I would like to thank everyone at BMG for sharing our collective commonality-vision to touch people’s hearts with energy, conviction and integrity. Now more than ever, we need songs and melodies to remind us that we are significant, meaningful and that life is full of blessings and miracles.”

Michael Vrionis, President/Universal Tone Management, said, “All of us at Universal Tone Management are honored and excited to partner with BMG on Carlos’ upcoming album, Blessings and Miracles. This album is sure to be a huge success with an all-star lineup of singers, writers, and the timeless grooves of Carlos Santana. These songs will add to the endless list of eternally relevant masterpieces created by one of the greatest guitar players of all time.”

Thomas Scherer, BMG President Repertoire & Marketing, Los Angeles and New York, said, “We are honored to welcome the transcendent Carlos Santana and his team to BMG. Santana’s sound is a universal language with his guitar resonating deep inside your core. Listening to and feeling this album is an embrace of the source from where we all come from. Blessings and Miracles is full of joy, and we are grateful to be his partner in spreading this musical treasure to his fans and new fans everywhere around the world.”

To date, Santana has won 10 Grammy Awards and three Latin Grammys, with a record-tying nine Grammys for a single project for 1999’s Supernatural (including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for ‘Smooth’). He has received the Billboard Century Award (1996), was ushered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (1998), received the Billboard Latin Music Awards’ Lifetime Achievement honor (2009), and was the recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors Award (2013).

Among many other distinctions, Carlos Santana has been cited by Rolling Stone as number 15 on their list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time; and has joined the Rolling Stones as one of only two bands to have an album reach the Top 10 in every decade since the 1960s. In 2018, he released his first MasterClass, and recently celebrated three epic milestones – the 20th anniversary of his groundbreaking album Supernatural, the 50th anniversary of his legendary performance at Woodstock, as well as the 50th anniversary of his iconic album Abraxas. His most recent album, Africa Speaks (2019), was called his “best record in decades” (NPR) and was ranked among “the fiercest albums in Santana’s 50-year career” by The New York Times.

Santana will continue his concert residency at the House of Blues Las Vegas this summer and fall.

“Twenty years have passed since Carlos Santana made music history by tying Michael Jackson’s record for most Grammy Awards won in a single ceremony. And even though his head was spinning that night, he still remembers how unusual it was. “On the actual night, I kept making fun of it, saying, ‘I feel like a doggy retrieving a frisbee,’” the guitarist says now. “I kept going back and forth, back and forth.” “
