Now, Roth has filled in some of the details, revealing to the Van Halen News Desk that the new version was cut on May 3, 2022, at Henson Recording Studio in L.A., with a band consisting of guitarist Al Estrada, bassist Ryan Wheeler and drummer Francis Valentino.
What’s more, the unit recorded a full 14 songs in just two hours.
Said Roth, “It’s all LIVE & it’s Van Halen free. No samples. No autotune.”
