Van Halen Post Sample of "Honeybabysweetiedoll"

We're getting down to the last few songs on Van Halen's new album, A Different Kind of Truth, and today we've got 90 seconds of track eight, a far-out sounding tune called "Honeybabysweetiedoll."

Last year, Sammy Hagar told Rolling Stone that many of the tracks on the new Van Halen album were to be re-worked versions of old demos and song ideas. In an interview with the L.A. Times, David Lee Roth confirmed as much, saying: "It's material that Eddie and I generated, literally, in 1975, 1976 and 1977. 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."
