ZZ Top fans have been waiting for a new album from the ZZ Top since 2016. Finally, ZZ Top announced that they will release a new album called ‘Raw‘ for the fans on July 22, 2022. Also, ZZ Top will start the U.S tour in May 2022.
The band planned to release a new album in 2019. After the tragic death of the ZZ Top bassist Dusty Hill, the band needed to delay the ‘raw’ album release to July 22, 2022. The album includes absolute classic tracks like the “Gimme All Your Lovin’.”
ZZ Top had finished the recording process. The band said, “in connection with the band’s wildly popular and critically lauded 2019 Netflix documentary.”
The band planned to release a new album as a CD. Also, they will release the album on all digital platforms. You can read the official announcement about the album below.
“The Grammy-nominated feature from Banger Films and director Sam Dunn includes an interlude that finds the group’s classic lineup — Billy Gibbons, Frank Beard, and the late Dusty Hill — gathering for a very intimate session at Gruene Hall, ‘the oldest continually run dance hall in Texas.’ That performance provided the basis for the RAW album release and …it was, in a very real way, a return to our roots. Just us and the music, no audience of thousands, no concession stands, no parking lot social hour, no phalanx of tour busses. Just us and the music. We knew right then it was a very special circumstance, all of us in the same place at the same time, and what a time it most certainly was!
It was as bare-bones as when we first started touring in a behemoth Chrysler station wagon, driving vast stretches between those early far-flung shows under blackened Texas skies and first hearing our records on the radio. We were bonded as brothers.
‘The Dust‘ may have left the building but he’s still very much with us.”
