ZZ Top have shared a new version of “Heard it on the X” that will feature on the band’s upcoming live album, Raw, which is due out on July 22.
“Heard It On The X” featured on ZZ Top’s fourth album Fandango!.
Billy Gibbons noted, “Even though Dusty, Frank, and I grew up in different part of Texas we listened to the same stations, particularly the ‘X’ stations and, as a result, we gained a lot of the same musical and cultural points of reference.”
Raw was recorded in conjunction with the blues-rock trio’s 2019 documentary That Little Ol’ Band from Texas. It will be released as a tribute to longtime bassist Dusty Hill, who died in July 2021 at age 72.
The notable tracks that will appear on Raw include “La Grange,” “Tush” and “Gimme All Your Lovin’.” The album’s 12 tracks recall the very beginning of the band’s recording career and include many of their major hits.
In support of the Raw album, ZZ Top has also announced Raw Whisky Tour across North America.
