Santana and Chris Stapleton debut video for new single Joy

Santana is debuting a video for “Joy”, a track featuring Chris Stapleton that appears on the band’s latest album, “Blessings And Miracles.”

“I was very intrigued to work with Chris,” Carlos Santana explains. “We talked on the phone about the Covid situation and how there's so much fear in the world, and I said, 'We need to create music as a healing force. We must bring hope and courage and disinfect twisted minds infected with darkness.'

"That gave him the ammunition to write such incredible words. Somewhere I said, 'flying on the wings of angels,' so it's a collaboration. And what an incredible song it is. The choir in it - it's like the Staple Singers."

“Blessings And Miracles” sees Santana joined by an all-star lineup that includes Rob Thomas, Steve Winwood, Chick Corea, Corey Glover and Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett, among others.

The band are currently playing dates as part of the “An Intimate Evening with Santana: Greatest Hits Live” shows at the House of Blues Las Vegas at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.
