ZZ Top has reached back to its very early days with the first track to be released from their forthcoming RAW album, out July 22 from Shelter Records, through BMG.
Brown Sugar was a key cut on the very appropriately titled ZZ Top’s First Album that was released in January of 1971 and is the opening track on RAW, which itself is an homage to the band’s early days.
ZZ Top’s Brown Sugar, penned by Billy F Gibbons, should not be mistaken for the Rolling Stones song of the same title, the latter of which was actually released three months after ZZ Top’s First Album.
RAW was recorded and filmed for the Grammy-nominated Netflix documentary,
That Little Ol’ Band From Texas, in the intimate setting of the famed Texas honky-tonk, Gruene Hall between Austin and San Antonio.
