Carlos Santana - Carlos Santana Never Heard Latin Classics He Covers On New Album

Subscribe to Carlos Santana alerts

Guitar great Carlos Santana revelled in the recording of his new Spanish collaborative album because he discovered a whole new appreciation for Latin classics he had never heard before.

The veteran Mexican musician recruited an all-star line-up to cover famous Latin songs for his new release Corazon, but he admits many of the old tunes were completely new to him as he had grown up in California.

He tells the New York Daily News, "A lot of the songs I never heard before. I was raised in the '60s here in the United States so I wasn't hearing the frequency of the Latinos. But that gave me an advantage. Since I haven't heard it I get to make it new."

Romeo Santos, Pitbull, Lila Downs and Miguel all feature on the album, while Juanes performs La Flaca and Gloria Estefan sings Besos De Lejos.

Many of the guests performed their tunes with Santana at a show in Guadalajara, Mexico in December (13) and the concert special will air in the U.S. on Saturday (03May14).
