VIDEO: Van Halen preview Japanese singles box set

Van Halen are streaming a video preview of the November 1 release of a new box set entitled “The Japanese Singles 1978-1984.”

The package collects all 13 7” vinyl singles issued in Japan during the band’s original era, from the group’s 1978 self-titled debut to their sixth album, “1984.”

The original album version of each song is featured in this set except for “Hot For Teacher” – which has a unique single edit that was issued exclusively in Japan – along with the single edit versions of “(Oh) Pretty Woman” and “I’ll Wait.”

Each replica single features the original sleeve artwork and comes housed in a cigarette-style box.

Two versions of the box set will be available, including a black vinyl version and a limited edition version of 750 copies on red vinyl.

Inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2007, Van Halen have sold more than 75 million albums worldwide.
