ZZ Top is giving audiences another preview of its forthcoming recording, Raw, this summer, and in anticipation of its release, debuted another performance from the recording Friday.
The band released its performance of its classic song, ‘Tube Snake Boogie‘ Friday, along with a video of the performance. The premiere comes less than two months after the band premiered Raw‘s lead single, ‘Brown Sugar‘.
‘Tube Snake Boogie’ was originally featured in ZZ Top’s 1981 album, El Loco. It and all of the other songs featured in Raw were recorded at Gruene Hall in New Braunfels, TX. The songs are all culled from ZZ Top’s extensive catalog. The venue is the state’s oldest live music venue, reaching all the way back to 1878.
Raw will release on CD, 180-gram vinyl, and all digital platforms. The record’s track listing is noted below.
