Rodrigo y Gabriela Release New Track “Gamma State” Only on Amazon Music
October 4, 2019: Today, Mexican acoustic rock guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela released a brand-new Amazon Original song, “Gamma State,” available only on Amazon Music. Originally a demo from the sessions for their most recent album, Mettavolution, the band returned to the studio to flesh out the song into an intense and exhilarating guitar-centric sprint. Amazon Music is releasing the track as a part of the newly launch playlist, La Guitarra, a new, global playlist spotlighting Latin guitar greats.
“The first sketches of this song started a couple of years ago, when we started writing for the new album. We road-tested it on tour in Australia last year and it went down well with our fans there. However, as we zoomed in on recording Mettavolution with Dave Sardy in Los Angeles, it became apparent that it didn’t quite sit with the rest of the songs on the record,” said Rodrigo Sanchez. “So we are very happy that ‘Gamma State’ is now finally coming out into the world.”

Over the last 20 years, Rodrigo y Gabriela have defined and redefined instrumental guitar rock, remaining one of the most internationally recognized and revolutionary acts performing in the genre. Five years since their last album, the group returned this year with their most ambitious album yet, Mettavolution. Recorded in Los Angeles with noted producer Dave Sardy — best-known for his work with Oasis, LCD Soundsystem and Fall Out Boy — the new album brought together the group’s passionate interest in Buddhism, the history of human evolution and the liberation of the potential we have as a species. A long list of new material was distilled down to six new Rodrigo y Gabriela compositions and one audacious, jaw-dropping cover version. The album was released earlier this year, and Rodrigo y Gabriela are currently out on tour supporting the album. Full tour dates below.
Amazon Music listeners can find Rodrigo y Gabriela’s new track on Amazon Music’s new playlist La Guitarra, the home for Latin guitar greats.
