Wolfgang Van Halen has premiered a new song, titled “Distance,” from his Mammoth WVH project. The track was released as a tribute to his late father Eddie Van Halen and a video for it can be found below:
“As my pop continued to struggle with various health issues, I was imagining what my life would be like without him and how terribly I’d miss him. While the song is incredibly personal, I think anyone can relate to the idea of having a profound loss in their life.”
“I never intended ‘Distance‘ to be the very first piece of music people would hear from me, but I also thought my father would be here to celebrate its release. This is for him. I love and miss you, Pop.”
Proceeds from the song will go towards The Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation.
