A limited-edition VAN HALEN seven-inch vinyl single of the song “She’s The Woman” will be available for free starting Friday, May 4 with the purchase of the band’s new album, “A Different Kind Of Truth”, at participating record stores around the country (full list of stores available here).
VAN HALEN‘s video for the song “She’s The Woman” can be seen below. The track comes off the band’s new album, “A Different Kind Of Truth”, which sold 187,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 2 on The Billboard 200 chart.
“A Different Kind Of Truth” is the band’s first full-length offering with original singer David Lee Roth since “1984″ was released in January 1984.
Roth exited the group in 1985, a year after its “1984″ album was released. According to Billboard.com, “1984″ spent five weeks at No. 2 on The Billboard 200 — VAN HALEN‘s highest charting set with Roth. (1996′s “Best Of Volume 1″ hits album, which included two new songs with Roth, debuted at No. 1 with 233,000 sold in its first week.)
VAN HALEN‘s other four other No. 1s were their four studio albums with Roth‘s replacement, Sammy Hagar: “5150″ (1986), “OU812″ (1988), “For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge” (1991) and “Balance” (1995).
VAN HALEN‘s previous all-new album, 1998′s “Van Halen III”, debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard chart and was certified gold for sales of 500,000 copies, a disappointment compared to their previous platinum efforts.
“She’s The Woman” originally appeared on the 1976 demo, produced by KISS bassist Gene Simmons, that got VAN HALEN their record deal with Warner Bros. It was left off the group’s 1978 debut but has been resurrected for the new disc.
