Legendary guitarist Carlos Santana can check another item off his bucket list. Reportedly, the Mexican rocker will be releasing his first all-Spanish album next year! 

According to a report by Houston’s La Voz, a source close to the 66-year-old star said he is working on the last touches of the new album, which will include several guest artists from Latin American and the United States.

While some of Santana’s greatest hits, such as Oye Como Va and Samba Pa Ti, are in Spanish, the rocker has primarily released songs in English. Over the years, he has teamed up with world-renowned artists, such as Tito Puente, Fleetwood Mac, Willie Nelson, Rob Thomas, and Maná

In December, Carlos Santana will be honored by the Kennedy Center for his contribution to the arts. He will be joined by fellow Latino, Puerto Rican opera singer, Martina Arroyo.
