Sammy Hagar says the unreleased 1996 Van Halen track “Between Us Two” isn’t hard to find and when it does finally see the light of day, it’ll be worth the wait.
During a recent appearance on the Kyle Meredith with…podcast, Hagar was asked about the ballad recorded for the soundtrack to Twister and whether he thinks the song will eventually be released.
“Everyone keeps asking me if there’s any old songs that never got released, and I always say, ‘Not really. There was a couple.’ But I didn’t remember — two or three. ‘Between Us Two’, that’s a midtempo ballad. That’s like a ‘Be Still’ kind of a song, from my new album [‘Crazy Times’ by Sammy Hagar & The Circle]. If somebody said, ‘How was it?’ It was more like a ‘Be Still’. It was kind of almost country — not country, but… I don’t know. It was kind of like ‘Can’t Stop Lovin’ You’, [but] not as uptempo.
“I don’t know if I can resurrect it, but we got it; it’s done,” added Hagar. “It’s in the archives; they’ll find it. They’re looking through the archives right now to try to remaster some of the old stuff from my era. They’ll find it. That’s gonna be a treasure.”
