Wolfgang Van Halen Completes Solo Debut Album

Wolfgang Van HalenVan Halen bassist Wolfgang Van Halen has wrapped up his upcoming debut solo album. After teasing the work beginning in 2015, he posted on his Instagram that it’s one step closer to being done.

“I just tracked the last vocal on my project which means recording is officially complete,” he wrote. “It’s a good day. I’m happy.” He followed up with a note saying that the mixing was finished as well.

Van Halen played everything on the album himself including bass, guitar, drums, keyboards, and vocals. His father, guitarist Eddie Van Halen, described the project as “AC/DC meets Van Halen meets aggressive pop.” “It’s a little of everything and sounds like a freight train coming at you,” he told Guitar World. “I’ve never heard anything quite like it. It’s so powerful that I’m jealous.”

A release date has yet to be set.
