(Radio.com) For the first time in over 45 years, Carlos Santana has recorded a studio album with the lineup he used in the early 1970s. His new album Santana IV marks the first time the legendary guitarist recorded with the same band featured on his 1971 effort Santana III.

According to a press release the 16-track album will be released on April 15 and features Santana's classic line-up of keyboardist and vocalist Gregg Rolie, Journey guitarist Neal Schon, percussionist Michael Carabello and drummer Michael Shrieve.

"It was magical," Santana says of the sessions. "We didn't have to try to force the vibe - it was immense. From there, we then needed to come up with a balance of songs and jams that people would immediately identify as Santana."

The iconic guitarist adds, "When you can go back and break new ground with joy and determination - and some whoop-ass energy - it gets you going. I think we achieved something very rare. This music was screaming to come out of us. It wasn't about nostalgia. It was about passion." Read more here.
