ZZ Top has a new live recording on the way.
The veteran rock trio has announced that it will release a new live recording this summer. Greatest Hits Live will be released Friday, August 12th via Suretone Records. The record will feature live performances of some of the band’s biggest hits from its decades-long career. They include the band’s breakthrough hit ‘La Grange,’ ‘Gimme All Your Lovin’,’ Sharp Dressed Man,’ ‘Legs,’ and even a special cover of Tennessee Ernie Ford’s ‘Sixteen Tons.’ The performances in question are taken from a number of the band’s tours rather than just one tour. Billy Gibbons, the band’s front man, said of the recording that it is the live record for fans from the band. “We spend the biggest stretch of every year out on the road, whippin’ wire, poundin’ skin, and rockin’ it way up,” he said. “This is the true document of life de la ZZ. In an abstract surrealism style, this collection is a definitive chronicle of the band hangin’ together for four plus deluxe decades, getting down to do what we get to do. Enjoy and listen to loudness!”
Greatest Hits Live will be released on a variety of platforms including: CD, gatefold vinyl, and digital through all streaming and download stores.
