Wolfgang Van Halen Didn’t Plan To Include ‘Distance’ On Mammoth WVH Album

One of the most touching songs on the new Mammoth WVH album is “Distance”, Wolfgang Van Halen’s tribute to his late father Eddie. But the song wasn’t originally meant for the album at all. Wolfgang says he wrote the song years ago, “between 2013 and 2015” as Eddie Van Halen was struggling with health issues. He didn’t plan to include it on the album until after his father’s death last October.

He also can’t bring himself to watch the “Distance” music video, which includes vintage video footage of Wolfgang and his dad.

Wolfgang’s debut solo album Mammoth WVH is officially out today, and here is the tracklisting:
1. “Mr. Ed”
2. “Horribly Right”
3. “Epiphany”
4. “Don’t Back Down”
5. “Resolve”
6. “You’ll Be the One”
7. “Mammoth”
8. “Circles”
9. “The Big Picture”
10. “Think It Over”
11. “You’re to Blame”
12. “Feel”
13. “Stone”
14. “Distance”
