ZZ Top frontman Billy F Gibbons laat op 6 juni 2021 zijn derde solo album op ons los onder de titel Hardware. We krijgen alvast een teaser van wat komen zal. Back to the 60's samen in de mix met surftunes en rock, damn nice sound. Ook de videoclip van West Coast Junkie kan me bekoren. Als de rest van dezelfde kwaliteit zal zijn ligt Quentin Tarantino al op de loer om deze sounds in zijn volgende film te gebruiken.

Billy F Gibbons has announced details of his third solo album, to be titled Hardware and released on June 4 by Concord Records. The ZZ Top frontman previews the set today (26) by sharing the spirited and atmospheric single “West Coast Junkie,” with a video filmed near Joshua Tree in California, close to the album’s recording location in the high desert at Escape Studio, near Palm Springs.
Hardware was produced by Gibbons with Matt Sorum and Mike Fiorentino with additional production by engineer Chad Shlosser. As a title, Hardware is an affectionate nod to the late and great recording engineer Joe Hardy, whose working relationship with Gibbons and ZZ Top goes back to the mid-1980s. The album also bears the influence of its recording location. “The desert settings, replete with shifting sands, cacti and rattlesnakes makes for the kind of backdrop that lends an element of intrigue reflected in the sounds created out there,” says Gibbons.
