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 Wheeleron 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.
