Joe Satriani was determined to try different things on Shapeshifting - a lot of different things.

“I started to think that that sounds like 15 different guitar players,” he says of his new album. “I know it’s the same guy, because it’s me, but it sounds like I’m really moving into an area where each melody requires me to almost be somebody else.”

Not that he's expecting fans to be fooled. "I’m well aware that you just can’t help but sound like yourself, we all know that anyway," he tells UCR. "All of my heroes are always identifiable to me from the first note. But from the artist side of it, it’s a wide world that we’re in, and we’re always trying to express ourselves in new ways. Sometimes we have to create these parameters that kick us in the ass to move into some new territory. It’s not always as recognizable or palpable to the fan, but it’s a source of inspiration to us, to the artist doing it. It’s just like somebody putting on a mask and finally being able to act. But you take off the mask and they’re too embarrassed to jump around and act like a fool."

Working with co-producer Jim Scott, bassist Chris Chaney, keyboardist Eric Caudieux and drummer Kenny Aronoff, who was briefly a touring member of the Sammy Hagar-fronted group Chickenfoot, which also includes Satriani. The guitarist set out to push himself into new worlds with each track. Lead single "Nineteen Eighty" is an unabashed love letter to a golden age of guitar heroes, while "Ali Farka, Dick Dale, an Alien and Me" envisions a late-night jam among the African music legend, the surf-rock pioneer and an out-of-this-world collaborator.
