Van Halen have announced a box set comprised of 13 singles they released in Japan between 1978 and 1984.

The Japanese Singles will be made up of 7” vinyls, complete with replicas of the original sleeve artwork. A limited-edition red vinyl set is available for pre-order now, with a traditional black vinyl set due for release on Nov. 1.

The material within The Japanese Singles comes from the band’s first six albums: Van Halen (1978), Van Halen II (1979), Women and Children First (1980), Fair Warning (1981), Diver Down (1982) and 1984 (1984). Among the classic singles are “Ain’t Talkin’ ’Bout Love,” “Somebody Get Me a Doctor,” “And the Cradle Will Rock,” “Dancing in the Street,” “Panama” and “Jump.” A single edit of “Hot for Teacher,” originally issued exclusively in Japan, is also part of the set.

A full track listing can be found below.

The box set announcement is the latest news in a busy year of headlines for Van Halen. For months, fans were left hanging as will-they-or-won’t-they reunion rumors continued to fly. Though plans for a tour were eventually nixed, singer David Lee Roth recently announced a solo residency in Las Vegas. Meanwhile, the indie rock group the Bird and the Bee released an album of Van Halen covers, while Weezer announced Van Weezer, an LP due in 2020 featuring arena-rock tunes similar to Van Halen's work. Both releases further reflect Van Halen's lasting impact on generations of artists.
