Living Colour has teamed up with guitar virtuoso Steve Vai for a new version of the band’s signature song, “Cult of Personality.”

The collaboration comes after the two acts performed together at the Rock in Rio festival earlier this month.

In a statement, Living Colour guitarist Vernon Reid says, “In celebration of 30th anniversary of Living Colour’s first appearance in Brazil, which also was [bassist] Doug Wimbish‘s first live appearance with the band, we are releasing a special edition version of ‘Cult of Personality’ featuring our special guest in Rio de Janeiro, our dear friend, the extraordinary Mr. Steve Vai on additional guitar.”

You can listen to the updated “Cult of Personality” now via digital outlets.

The original “Cult of Personality” was released in 1988 and won Best Hard Rock Performance at the 1990 Grammys.
