Can you dig it?
Your last solo release was the second installment of the Real Illusions trilogy. Are there any plans to release the follow-up to 2012’s The Story of Light?
Vai: My next studio record will not be that because I have something else I want to do. Most of my records are very dense, composition-heavy, and there’s bits of different kinds of music like an acoustic ballad, instrumental trio pieces, and vocal tracks. The record that I’m working on is the one that my fans wanted me to make that I never made. It’s me playing guitar as intensely as I can. It’s kind of like Alien Love Secrets, which was an EP I previously released.
