Van Halen: "Beats Workin'" Clip

It's time once again to get your daily fix of new Van Halen material, as we've got another clip from A Different Kind of Truth for your listening pleasure. Check out a 90-second sampler of the album's closing track, "Beats Workin'," below.

A Different Kind of Truth is out in less than a week, on February 7, via Interscope.

The band will kick off an extensive North American tour on February 18 in Lousville, Kentucky.

"It's material that Eddie and I generated, literally, in 1975, 1976 and 1977," said frontman David Lee Roth of the band's new material. "Usually fellas in our weight division will kind of gamely — or ironically, wink, wink — try to hail back to it [but] keep a safe, mature distance from it."
