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.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
