The Isley Brothers and legendary guitarist Carlos Santana are to join forces on a new music project they call, "Power Of Peace."
The new and upcoming project is set for an August 4th release date via Legacy Recordings.
The album was recorded in 2016 and sees Santana and the Isley bros doing covers of timeless soul, funk, blues, pop and more.
"I feel a deep sense of gratitude, appreciation, and thankfulness", explained Carlos about the album. "There is a spirit of creativity that came knocking and presented itself as a golden opportunity to do something with and for a supreme musician, who I consider to be the best in the world. Brother Ronnie Isley has been in the center of collective unity and harmony on the radio around the world since 1962 with ‘Twist and Shout,’ the song that the Beatles chose to invade America with. Like Michael Jackson, John Lennon, and Bob Marley, he’s an iconic supreme of the highest order. Cindy and I feel very blessed to offer him this gift. From God, through us to you, for the world…Mr. Ronnie Isley.”
Ronald Isley added, "It was an absolute joy working on this album with Carlos!. I hope this record carries the spirit of hope , love, and peace to the world that it brought to me, my brother and Carlos!” Ernie adds, "Doing this project with Carlos Santana was fun and illuminating. I hope all music lovers enjoy what we have done."
The Power Of Peace album will be available in CD, 12" vinyl and digital formats.
