ZZ Top release Texicali EP

ZZ Top release Texicali EP -

That little ol' band from Texas are back with a brand new four-track EP which is now available from iTunes and all digital retail outlets.

The new EP, entitled 'Texicali,' has been produced by world-renowned record producer Rick Rubin. It is part of a full-length ZZ Top album which, at present is still untitled and hasn't been given a release date. Although the new album will be released through American Recordings.

Rubin said:

"Based on the visibility of the 'Gotsta Get Paid' song, we decided to make available more of a taste of the album than just the one song."

He continued: "That's the beauty of the new digital landscape; we can put out what we want when we want, in the best service of the artist."

Gibbons notes

"We were itching to get some new music out before the full album release; making available these four tracks seems like a good way to accomplish that most expeditiously. Dusty, Frank and I are happy with what's been accomplished in the studio so we figured we'd provide some hot and tasty 'hors d'oeuvres' before the main course is served this fall."
