David Lee Roth has released a new song called Giddy-Up! The track, which also features original artwork by the Van Halen singer, can be heard below.

Giddy-Up! was one of five songs included in last fall’s The Roth Project, an online comic narrated by Roth, with music from John 5 on guitar and bass, Greg Bissonette on drums, Brett Tuggle on keyboards, and Luis Conte on percussion. The 17-chapter comic also included four other songs Roth co-wrote with John 5 and recorded several years ago at Henson Recording Studios in Hollywood, California: Somewhere Over The Rainbow Bar And Grill Alligator Pants, Lo-Rez Sunset and Manda Bala.

      I don’t know that it sounds like vintage Van Halen (the production sounds VERY different to my ears), but I do hear some lines in the melody that remind me of parts of The Full Bug off Diver Down.

      My only quibble with this song is that it doesn’t have one of John 5’s INSANE chicken-pickin’ guitar solos.

      I was speaking about the song itself, not the production. I don’t usually get that technical…

      D 🙂

    Well, it’s not “Somewhere Over The Rainbow Bar And Grill,” that was “Damn Good!” 😉 But it’s ok.

    I’d like to hear the whole album when it comes out sounds like be good from what I’ve head so far. This song is like a hybrid of classic VH and his eat-’em and smile solo stuff. I thought Roth dropping the Lee from his name and that picture he looks like a scary version of Sting.

    It is still very upsetting to think about Eddie’s passing … the pain his son is still going through , I’m just not into roth and his style of cheesey music , eddie was the soul of Vanhalen music , and roth was the carnival Barker , together it worked , separate from each other at least for me it didnt work for roth , he needed eddie ~
