ZZ Top singer and guitarist Billy Gibbons is on his own again as he will release his third album on June 4th.
Titled Hardware, Gibbons says, "We holed up in the desert for a few weeks in the heat of the summer and that in itself was pretty intense. To let off steam we just ‘let it rock’ and that’s whatHardwareis really all about. For the most part, it’s a raging rocker but always mindful of the desert’s implicit mystery.”
Joining Gibbons on the album is former Guns N' Roses and Velvet Revolver drummer Matt Sorum, who not only co-produced the album with him, but also co-wrote 11 of the12 songs.
The album's first single, "West Coast Junkie," is out now. The video was filmed near Joshua Tree, a stone’s throw from the studio.
Billy's other two albums are The Big Bad Blues and Perfectamundo and The Big Bad Blues.
