ZZ Top Song To Be Featured In Jeremiah Weed Whiskey Ad

ZZ Top Song To Be Featured In Jeremiah Weed Whiskey Ad
4/1/2012 5:06 PM ET

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."
