Full disclosure: We have no idea if Van Halen is nearing completion on their new album.
So why ask the question? Well, if Eddie Van Halen is visiting a mastering engineer, then perhaps something is afoot.
This picture was posted to social media by Howie Weinberg, who has mastered a ton of albums, including the last Van Halen album, 2012’s A Different Kind of Truth. The caption on the photo reads “Eddie Van Halen came by to visit Howie at his studio.”
So, on one hand, it could mean nothing at all in terms new Van Halen, as the pair are likely old friends and a visit to his studio could mean they were just hanging out.
