Following a brief collaboration on last year’s Santana IV LP, Santana and the Isley Brothers will release an album together this summer.

Power of Peace is due on Aug. 4, and features guitarist Carlos Santana, along with his drummer wife Cindy Blackman Santana, and Ronald and Ernie Isley. Ronald sang two songs, “Love Makes the World Go Round” and “Freedom in Your Mind,” on Santana IV, which reunited the classic Santana lineup from the early ’70s.

The new LP includes covers of songs made famous by Marvin Gaye (“Mercy Mercy Me [The Ecology]”), Billie Holiday (“God Bless the Child”), Muddy Waters (“I Just Want to Make Love to You”) and Stevie Wonder (“Higher Ground”). There’s also one new song written and sung by Cindy Blackman Santana.
