music news 24/04/2018

ZZ Top fans have something to look forward to this year, with hopefully two new albums from Billy Gibbons.

The first album will be a follow up to his 2015 solo album Perfectamundo, and the second is newly recorded music by the Moving Sidewalks, the 60's psychedelic garage-rock band Gibbons was in before forming ZZ Top.

Gibbons recorded the solo record with the BFG's, the same group that backed him on Perfectamundo. He told ABC News Radio, it will be a little closer to what's expected from him. "Following the success of Perfectamundo, which was our stab at taking a piece from the Cuban influences … they've said, 'Okay, we've done this Cuban thing, can you go back to your bluesier roots?'" he said. "And we've decided to do just that. So, hopefully summertime we'll see something BFG and blue coming out."
