    Guitarist Steve Vai will issue The Story of Light on Aug. 14.

    The record is mostly instrumental but it does feature guest vocalists like the ethereally beautiful Aimee Mann, The Voice season one finalist Beverly McCellan and blues singer Blind Willie Johnson. It's 12 songs long and will continue "a conceptual and cosmic narrative arc that began with [Steve's] most recent studio release, 2005's acclaimed Real Illusions: Reflections," per a press release on the album.

    Will you open your mind and ears to The Story of Light?
