DAVID LEE ROTH Shares Newly Recorded Version Of VAN HALEN’s ‘Dance The Night Away

David Lee Roth has shared a new solo version of the VAN HALEN classic “Dance The Night Away”. The track, like the previously released “Panama” and “Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love”, was laid down on May 3, 2022 during a session at Henson Recording Studio in Hollywood, California. Joining Roth in the studio were Al Estrada on guitar, Ryan Wheeler on bass and Francis Valentino on drums. A total of 14 songs were recorded in two hours. The music and the vocals were tracked live with “no samples” and without the pitch-correction technology Auto-Tune.

Roth‘s versions of “Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love” and “Panama” come more than a month after he shared a previously unheard solo recording from 2007, “Nothing Could Have Stopped Us Back Then Anyway”, in which he looked back nostalgically on his days in VAN HALEN. The latter song was recorded in 2007 with guitarist John 5 and drummer Gregg Bissonette for an album that never came out.

Three years ago, Roth was asked by Meltdown of the Detroit radio station WRIF if his LP with John 5 will be made available at some point. He responded: “It will. There’s been a revision of things, and I can start making real plans and start marching into the future. And, of course, you’ll start hearing that material. This is material that we wrote variously for me solo and for VAN HALEN, and it’s quite a bank of stuff.”

Roth, who was promoting his Las Vegas residency at the time, didn’t offer a possible time frame for the release of the record, explaining that his priority was “getting out on the road first. Let’s see the band, let’s show ourselves off, let’s travel all over the world.”

In July, Roth released a new solo song titled “Pointing At The Moon”. The acoustic-based, Americana-flavored tune was accompanied by a new abstract painting from Roth.
