Mexican rock outfit Mana has wrapped work on its seventh album, "Revolucion de Amor," due Aug. 20 from Warner Music International. It's the follow-up to 1997's "Suenos Liquidos," which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Latin Albums tally and has sold 471,000 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan. An "MTV Unplugged" album was released in 1999 and also hit No. 1 on the Top Latin Albums tally.

Mana got a boost of international visibility by guesting on the track "Corazon Espinado" from Santana's 1999 smash Arista album "Supernatural." Guitarist Carlos Santana returns the favor on an as-yet-unrevealed track on "Revolucion de Amor" and joined the group for a live rendition of "Corazon Espinado" this week at a concert in Imola, Italy.

"We aren't into the concept of putting out one record a year," the band said in a statement. "For us it's important to take our time and dedication on each record we've created. We think our fans have appreciated that."

The new album also features a guest turn from Latin star/actor Ruben Blades.
