The reason for the change was unknown at deadline.
As with his past two albums, 1999's "Supernatural" and 2002's "Shaman," the new set is tipped to feature collaborations with a number of high-profile acts, including OutKast's Big Boi, Mary J. Blige, Los Lonely Boys, the Black Eyed Peas, Sean Paul, Robert Randolph and Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett.
The set reteams Santana with Michelle Branch, who guested on the 2002 single "The Game of Love." That track spent 13 weeks at No. 1 on Billboard's Adult Top 40 chart and four weeks at the top of the Adult Contemporary tally. It also peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Santana will begin a North American tour May 30 in Tampa, Fla., with support from Los Lonely Boys. Another run of dates will get underway Sept. 21 in Vancouver, with support from Randolph and the Family Band.
In between those two legs, Santana will join Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter for five shows in Japan in late July and early august under the moniker Emissaries for Peace.
