Steve Vai has joined forces with Jonah Nilsson – the lead vocalist for Stockholm-based three-piece Dirty Loops – for an uber-funky new single, Diamond Ring.

Joined by keys king Kristian Kraftling, guitarist Jesper Naenfeldt, drummer Kefa Figaro and bass guitar man Tobias Grenholm, the pair’s new track combines blues, rock, soul, funk and pop, and features one ridiculously silky solo from the man himself.
