Heart guitarist Nancy Wilson has released her musical tribute to Eddie Van Halen.

“4 Edward” is a one minute and 43 second acoustic song, which is special for Wilson.

“When Heart toured with Van Halen, I asked Eddie why he never played acoustic guitar. His response; ‘I don’t have one,’” Wilson said in a statement.

“I gave Eddie one of mine and he immediately wrote a song on it that stole my heart. After he passed, it hit me so hard I felt it was time to pay tribute to him,” she continued.

The gentle tribute serves as the closing track to Wilson’s debut solo album, You and Me, which arrives May 7th.
