ZZ Top Takes New Approach

The next ZZ Top studio album still doesn't have a firm title or release date, but Billy Gibbons tells Rolling Stone that progress has been steady.  Speaking with David Fricke, the guitarist says the trio's new effort benefits from having a producer that has allowed the album to develop at an unhurried pace.  He says Rick Ruben has allowed the group to reconsider and revise some of the songs they had completed in earlier sessions. Even though Gibbons characterizes the album as '...pretty streamlined and straight forward', he says the Ruben approach led to some 'accidents' he feels took some songs in unexpected but good directions.  As for when fans will be able to get their ears on the release, Gibbons says it should be out before the summer.
