Van Halen will give away a limited-edition vinyl single of their song "She's the Woman" with copies of the new album A Different Kind of Truth on May 4th, Ultimate Classic Rock reports. The 7-inch will only be available at participating independent retailers, much in the same way that other acts release Record Store Day exclusives.

As of yet, there is no word on whether or not the single will feature a new or previously unreleased track on the B-side. The vinyl single will be given away with the album whether it is purchased as a CD or as an LP.

“Bird on a Wire”

Leonard Cohen | 1969

While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
