Metallica‘s Kirk Hammett is guesting on an upcoming album from Carlos Santana.

Speaking with ABC Audio, the “Black Magic Woman” rocker reveals that he has three albums on the way, including one titled Blessings and Miracles that’s 90-percent completed, and that will feature an appearance by Hammett.

“[M]y brother Kirk Hammett from Metallica is playing [on it],” Carlos reveals. “He’s tearing it up.”

Santana reports that Steve Winwood and Living Colour frontman Corey Glover also may be featured on the album.

Interestingly, Hammett and Living Colour guitarist Vernon Reid both contributed to the latest studio album by Carlos’ wife, Santana drummer Cindy Blackman Santana, 2020’s Give the Drummer Some. Carlos also plays guitar on several tracks on that record.
