Sneak Peek of New Steve Vai Track

Posted by Michael Mueller on July 5, 2012 at 9:28 AM

Steve Vai offered a preview of his upcoming album The Story of Light when he played one of the disc's songs, "Racing the World," during a visit to the Artist Relations room at Guitar Center in Hollywood, CA.

"I felt I needed a song that was uptempo, with a good, identifiable melody and good energy," Vai says of the song in the video intro. "There's nothing overly artistic, or, I don't think there's anything brilliant about it, but it's really fun to play, it's simple, and it has a nice melody."

The Story of Light is due out August 14 on Favored Nations. For all the latest news or to check out pre-sale options for the album, check out
