Bassist Says There's A 'Good Chance' ZZ Top Will Release Another Album


ZZ Top's last studio album, La Futura, was released back in 2012, but bassist Dusty Hill says "there's a good chance" the Rock & Roll Hall of Famers will release another album.

"We've got a lot in the can," Hill said in an interview with Ultimate Classic Rock. "It depends on how we would want to put it together or redo it or whatever. Because it's years of stuff. We just record everything, and then we go, 'Well, no, this didn't quite feel right, right now.'"

"We'll start writing a song, and one piece will kind of start standing out on its own and that turns into a separate song," he added. "So the original song was good, but we just discarded it to go on with the other one. Suffice to say, we've got a lot in the can and we keep talking about it."

Formed in Houston, Texas, in 1969, ZZ Top released a compilation album, Goin' 50, earlier this year, commemorating the band's 50th anniversary.

ZZ Top performed an 8-date residency at the Venetian in Las Vegas earlier this year and are currently trekking across the country.
