ZZ Top‘s Billy Gibbons has released a new song, “Desert Hight,” from his upcoming third solo LP, Hardware, due out on June 4 via Concord Records.
“The City of Angels ain’t too far from here. And when I need some sin, it’s always near,” Gibbons sings amidst a skeletal bass line and guitar leads.
“The desert is a truly mysterious place and we were privileged to have spent all that time there absorbing the heat, the vibe and cranking it out,” Gibbons wrote on Twitter, explaining the song’s inspiration.
Gibbons recorded Hardcore at Escape Studio in California’s high desert, near Palm Springs. He co-produced the album with Matt Sorum and Mike Fiorentino, with engineer Chad Shlosser providing additional support.
