ZZ Top fans won't have to wait until the band's long-awaited new album comes out to hear a new song from the Texas trio. Their new song "25 Lighters" will be used in an ad campaign for Jeremiah Weed Whiskey.
ZZ Top member Billy Gibbons told Billboard: "It's a good product, so I thought, 'Why not...?'"
"So their marketing campaign includes ZZ Top as kind of an aside," Gibbons continued. "We wrapped up a TV commercial for them that will feature ('25 Lighters'), which will probably be a good starter piece to let out of the bag."
Gibbons will also roll out a line of BFG barbecue and hot sauces, as well as a beer and a designer pocketknife later this year.
As far as the band's new album, which features Rick Rubin manning the controls as producer, Gibbons says that the wait may be nearly over:
"It's down to seeds and stems," Gibbons explains. "Just picking through the good stuff."
