Joe Satriani and Steve Vai, two legendary guitarists, have joined forces for a groundbreaking collaboration. Their new single, titled "The Sea of Emotion, Pt. 1," marks the beginning of a 50-year-long friendship.

The Birth of a Musical Bond

Decades ago, as young teenagers, Satriani and Vai would sit on the edge of a magnificent field outside their high school. There, they would engage in deep discussions about life, meaning, and music. They affectionately dubbed this field "The Sea of Emotion."

Now, 50 years later, that field has been immortalized in melody and groove. The three-part suite captures the essence of their shared passion for music and their enduring friendship.

Reminders of Musical Roots

Each part of the song contains subtle nods to their musical influences from back then. A chord sequence they used to jam over during guitar lessons resurfaces, evoking memories of their formative years.

A Nostalgic Journey

The accompanying video, directed by Z.Z. Satriani, transports viewers back to the '70s. Stylist Brenda Moreno perfectly captures the era's vibe, while cinematographer Kelly Wourms skillfully captures the essence of their musical journey.

Joe Satriani expresses his gratitude to the talented actors who made the video come alive, and Steve Vai echoes the sentiment. The Sea of Emotion, Pt. 1 is more than just a song; it's a testament to the enduring power of music and friendship.
