Legendary Texas bad boys ZZ Top have a new record release on the horizon, and this week the big-bearded rockers revealed a trove of information pertaining to their upcoming effort.
Texicali will be the name of a forthcoming four-song E.P. from the group, who are collaborating with legendary hip-hop and metal producer Rick Rubin on it.
The group says the small sampling of songs, available June 5, will serve as a preview for a bigger collection to come.
"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," frontman Billy Gibbons says in a statement.
"[Bassist] Dusty [Hill], [drummer] Frank [Beard] 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," he added.
The group plans to put out a full-length later this year.
