Wolfgang Van Halen will release his first solo single on Monday.
The track is called "Distance" and the song was inspired by his late father Eddie Van Halen. Wolfgang said in a statement, "I never anticipated 'Distance' would be the first song of mine that people would hear, but I also thought my father would be here to celebrate its release along with me. This is for him." The track will be on Wolfgang's debut solo album, which is due out next year.
