ZZ Top guitarist scruffs up Fleetwood Mac

Song Premiere: Billy Gibbons and Co., 'Oh Well'

On the upcoming compilation album Just Tell Me That You Want Me: A Tribute to Fleetwood Mac, a diverse range of artists give their takes on Fleetwood Mac favorites. Here, ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons joins Blake Mills and Matt Sweeney to scruff up the Peter Green-written 1969 track "Oh Well," charging the original with heavily distorted riffs and deliberate, ramshackle percussion. The trio's "Oh Well" snarls and stomps with serious crunch.

Just Tell Me That You Want Me also features Lee Ranaldo, J. Mascis, Best Coast, the New Pornographers, the Kills, MGMT, Lykke Li, Bonnie "Prince" Billy and more. It is set for release on August 14th.

The first new studio album from ZZ Top in nine years is LA FUTURA, set for release September 11 by American Recordings. The album harks back to the hallmark raw sound of the band's formative years and will, inevitably, be considered a return to form on multiple levels.  LA FUTURA, produced by Rick Rubin and Billy F Gibbons, the band’s guitarist/singer, finds the legendary group infusing the newly recorded work with the electric blues/roots approach that typified ZZ Top's earliest work while, at the same time, reaching for new sonic horizons. At its fundament, this is  the incarnation of the band whose influence resonates today with such artists as The Black Keys, Jack White, Queens of the Stone Age and many others.

Now celebrating their 42nd year with the same line-up, Gibbons along with bassist/vocalist Dusty Hill and drummer Frank Beard have come up with ten tracks that reflect the band’s intuitive take on rock brought to new, sometimes surreal, plateaus.  “We thought long and hard about what this album should be,” commented Gibbons.  “We wanted to recall the directness of our early stuff but not turn our backs on contemporary technology.  The result of this melding of the past and the present is, of course, LA FUTURA.”

The fact that the new album’s title is in Spanish is a nod to an early ZZ Top tradition manifested in the titles of some of the band’s earliest albums including Tres Hombres, Fandango!, El Loco and Degüello. Known for decades by the sobriquet “That Little Ol’ Band From Texas,” ZZ Top was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by Keith Richards in 2004 and has maintained a very active international and domestic touring schedule over the intervening years.  They signed to American Recordings a few years ago and have been working on what would become LA FUTURA in spurts since then. Last year they finally entered Foam Box Recordings in Houston, working full time to lay down the tracks that would comprise LA FUTURA.  Additional recording for the album took place at Shangri La Studios in Malibu, CA.

The four songs that kick off LA FUTURA, “I Gotsta Get Paid,” “Chartreuse,” “Consumption” and “Over You” debuted last month as Texicali, a digital preview collection exclusively available from iTunes that achieved significant critical and sales success.  “I Gotsta Get Paid,” performed by the band in video spots for the Jeremiah Weed line of beverages raised awareness of the song that was inspired by the 1990’s underground Houston rap song “25 Lighters” by DJ DMD with Lil’ Keke and Fat Pat. USA Today named "“I Gotsta Get Paid” its top pick of the week, citing the band for unleashing "its trademark grit and grease in a raw, bluesy rough-and-tumble treatment..." No Depression called "Consumption"  "a grinding groove with a bit of Texan funk squeezed into the grooves."  Music Radar analyzed "Consumption," noting, "The groove is fat, crunchy and full of swagger," summing the effort us as "ZZ Top crankin' up some fresh, vital roadhouse blues."

Also part of LA FUTURA is, fittingly, “Flyin’ High.”  The track made its interstellar debut when it was piped into the Soyuz spacecraft at the time of its launch to the International Space Station thirteen months ago. Before it was fully completed, the song was heard onboard at the request of NASA Astronaut Mike Fossum, a long-time ZZ Top fan and intimate who had caught wind of it in an earlier conversation with Dusty Hill.

LA FUTURA also includes “I Don’t Wanna Lose, Lose, You” that has a real garage rock feel while “Big Shiny Nine” is a double entendre tour de force. “It’s Too Easy Mañana” is a down tempo lament, written by Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, whose chorus includes the lyric “it’s too easy to feel good.” “Heartache In Blue” includes vocals shared by Gibbons and Hill and can be likened to country blues as reimagined for the 21st Century. The album closes with “Have A Little Mercy,” a down and dirty funky tune, complete with tempo shift, that should serve to underscore the ZZ Top motto that “you just can’t lose with the blues.”

ZZ Top is currently on an extensive tour of European concert halls and festivals that kicked off earlier this week at Moscow’s Crocus Hall with other dates in Russia, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, France, Switzerland and Norway.  The band will embark on a string of U.S. dates thereafter, highlighted by a rare New York appearance at The Beacon Theatre the day after the release of LA FUTURA. A major multi-tiered marketing campaign will coincide with the release of LA FUTURA, bringing the good news that, at long last, there’s a new ZZ Top album to the nation and the world.

Release Notes:
The first ZZ Top album for nine years opens with the most remarkable rocknroll
song of the year. Gotsta Get Paid is an adaptation not of some old blues or
boogie, but of the Houston hip-hop classic 25 Lighters by DJ DMD with Lil Keke
and Fat Pat. It doesnt sound like hip-hop, naturally its reconfigured as a
dirty, lazy, heavy groove, Billy Gibbonss growling guitar and voice front and
centre. Its simply brilliant. In fact, their 15th album would sound amazing
even if the songs werent up to scratch Gibbons and co-producer Rick Rubin
have done a remarkable job in making the band sound both timely and timeless,
and fiercer than at any time in their career. But the songs hit the mark pretty
consistently, too: on Consumption, with its hiccups and pauses, ZZ Top sound
like an engine coughing and spluttering and roaring into life; Chartreuse picks
up where Tush left off; I Dont Wanna Lose, Lose You could have been buffed up
for Eliminator, but is all the better for being unpolished. Its an unexpectedly
wonderful return from an undervalued band.
Less WEB, More CD
Послушал сегодня альбом дважды. Очень сильная работа. Конечно, не лучшая в их дискографии, но для их возраста и по сравнению с тем, что выпускают сейчас их одногодки, это очень хорошо выглядит. Намного больше понравилось, чем Lynyrd Skynyrd.
