Living Colour have teamed up with Steve Vai for a remake of their signature hit “Cult Of Personality.”

“Cult of Personality” was the opening track and second single from Living Colour’s 1988 debut studio album Vivid. The song was released on July 14, 1988, and reached No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 9 on the Billboard Album Rock Tracks chart. It won the Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance at the 32nd Annual Grammy Awards.

“In celebration of the 30th anniversary of Living Colour’s first appearance in Brazil, which also was 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. Engineered & mixed by the original producer of the song Mr Ed Stasium,” Living Colour guitarist and co-founder Vernon Reid said.

Living Color had earlier teamed up with Vai for a live performance of the track at the recently held “Rock in Rio” in Brazil.
