Alien Love Secrets is an EP by guitarist Steve Vai, released on March 21, 1995 through Relativity Records, The EP reached No. 125 on the U.S, Billboard 2002 and remained on that chart for two weeks, It was written and recorded in less than six weeks as a stripped-down guitar, bass and drums record with minimal keyboards, According to Vai, he had wished to maintain a steady output of material following his 1993 album Sex & Religion, but the recording process for the 70+ minutes of his subsequent 1996 album Fire Garden was taking too long, Alien Love Secrets was therefore purposely released in anticipation of Fire Garden.
Notable tracks include "Bad Horsie", which was derived from a riff played by Vai during the final scenes of the 1986 film Crossroads; "Juice" was featured on the soundtrack of the 1996 PlayStation video game Formula 1; "Ya-Yo Gakk" is a call and response interplay with vocal recordings of Vai's young son Julian; "Tender Surrender", one of Vai's most popular songs, bases itself around a familiar sound, structure and tempo as Jimi Hendrix's "Villanova Junction Blues" from his 1999 live album Live at Woodstock, although written in a different key; and "The Boy from Seattle", which is a tribute to Hendrix written by Vai.
