    Carlos Santana has a new, as-yet untitled album due out in September, but he has recruited some key vocalists for cover songs.

    Rob Thomas worked on his rendition of Cream's "Sunshine of Your Love" and the guitarist also worked with Joe Cocker on Jimi Hendrix's "Little Wing." Scott Weiland laid down his pipes for the Rolling Stones' "Can't You Hear Me Knocking," while Chris Daughtry participates on Def Leppard's "Photograph." Soundgarden's Chris Cornell sang on Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love," while Papa Roach`s Jacoby Shaddix lent his voice to a cover of Deep Purple's "Smoke on the Water." The most different and out of the box vocalizations came from Nas, who dropped rhymes for AC/DC's "Back in Black." Santana chose half of the songs while his label head, Clive Davis, picked the other half.

    The final track listing for the album has yet to be determined.

    Which of these covers excites you the most?
