David Lee Roth has just dropped a new track, called “Giddy Up.” Blabbermouth reported the song was one of five included in “Diamond” Dave’s 2020 online comic, The Roth Project, and is one that the Van Halen co-founder co-wrote and recorded with guitarist John 5 at L.A.’s Henson Recording Studios a few years back.
Also featured backing Roth on the tune are original David Lee Roth Band drummer Greg Bissonette, Brett Tuggle on keyboards, Luis Conte on percussion, with John 5 also handling bass duties. There’s been no word as to whether fans should expect “Giddy Up” to be the teaser for a new album.
There’s no word on any forthcoming DLR live dates. Back in March 2020, due to the pandemic, Roth scrapped the final six shows of his Las Vegas residency.
Roth had been opening for Kiss during their “End Of The Road” tour dates, which were also put on ice at the time.
- David Lee Roth‘s last solo album was 2003’s Diamond Dave, which was released on Magna Carta Records — a subsidiary of Warner Bros.
- The set featured covers of the Beatles‘ “Tomorrow Never Knows,” the Hombres‘ “Let It Out (Let It All Hang Out),” the Doors‘ “Soul Kitchen,” the Steve Miller Band‘s “Shu Ba Da Du Ma Ma Ma Ma,” and the Jimi Hendrix Experience‘s “If 6 Was 9,” among other tracks.
