The track is one of two appearances from Satch on Wakeley's forthcoming studio album Symphony of Sinners and Saints – due out May 21 – the other being a track entitled Forgive Me.
Like Wakeley's previous album Midnight in Macedonia, Symphony of Sinners and Saints includes the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, recorded at London's world-renowned Abbey Road Studios.
On the track's theme, Wakeley explains: “Am I a sinner or a saint? I think we all struggle with that at times.
“I start with an uplifting, melodic arpeggiated string part, coupled with a guitar that gives the listener an idea that I’m contemplating. When the song chorus kicks in, it has an anthem vibe. Almost a cleansing tone. 'Here I am, take me for what I am.' When you listen to the song in this context, it resonates quite well.”
He continues: “[Joe] asked if it would be okay to take some creative liberties. And who am I to say no to Satriani? What he came up with was pure Satriani magic.”
“Playing guitar on Kitt's new album has been a fun, exhilarating experience, and a musical challenge, too,” Satch says. “Kitt's huge, cinematic sound makes each one of his songs a powerful sonic journey.”
