Steve Vai has shared In the Wind, a never-before-heard track recorded in the ‘90s alongside singer Johnny “Gash” Sombrotto.

Quintessentially classic rock in style, the track was written by a 30-something-year-old Vai to encapsulate the freedom of biker culture, with a selection of powerchord-driven riffs aimed at soundtracking a jaunt on the open road with the roar of a Harley between one’s legs.
