Good news for vinyl enthusiasts and Van Halen fans. Beginning May 4, the group is giving away a limited-edition seven-inch single of ‘She’s the Woman’ with the purchase of their new album, ‘A Different Kind of Truth.’

But there is a slight catch. You can’t just walk into any CD joint or big-box store and get the single. The band is only offering it at select independent record stores. In other words, Van Halen are extending Record Store Day beyond the third Saturday in April.

Collectors can also enter Ultimate Classic Rock’s contest for the chance to win a special red, 180-gram heavyweight vinyl copy of ’A Different Kind of Truth,’ which also features reprints of David Lee Roth‘s handwritten lyrics. The contest ends May 20, 2012.

Until the single comes out, you’ll have to be content to watch the new video for ‘She’s the Woman’ below over and over again. It features footage of the band performing the song, both onstage and in rehearsals, on their current tour. Last week, the band extended the tour by announcing 18 more dates from July to mid-August.

WHY WHY WHY would they decide to do this now, instead of putting it out last week for Record Store Day?! I wonder what’s on the B-side?

I won’t get it out here, so my best bet is to buy it off eBay.

How about just automatically sending it to those of us who already bought the vinyl addition.

Damn I agree with that. I’ll never see the single in fly over country, hell I’ll never see the band in this part of the country. Like Jason off of ebay.

Ditto, I got the same response from a store here yesterday. They put my name down for one if it does show up, anyway. That reminds me, maybe I’ll go post the press release on their Facebook page…

Sounds like it’s going to be the Brown M&M’s story from here: http://vimeo.com/36615187
(don’t hold me to that)

Cool! I mean, I’d rather have an unreleased song as the B-side, but I’ll take Brown M&Ms over another ADKOT regular album track anyway.

Interested in selling the extra copy? I cannot get it here in the UK. If so, shoot me a PM.

No dice for me. I drove 45 mins to the closest location, and they had nothing – maybe later or tomorrow. Can’t pre-buy it, can’t put a hold on one, nothing. I’ll have to keep calling and driving there it seems.

I called the next closest location, also no dice. They had the single, but not the LP it is given away with. Maybe tomorrow.

Ron, I have a copy on hold for me. If you want, I can try to snag you one if you’re willing to cover cost of the required purchase. Let me know.

EDIT: you know you don’t have buy just the LP to get it, right? It might vary from store to store, but the place I’m getting it is giving it away with purchase of ADKOT CDs too.
