ZZ Top, ‘La Futura’ – Most Anticipated Fall 2012 Albums
The ten-song record, co-produced by Rick Rubin and the band’s ever-so-stylish guitarist and singer Billy Gibbons. How’d they get that title? “We thought long and hard about what this album should be,” Gibbons says in a press release. “We wanted to recall the directness of our early stuff but not turn our backs on contemporary technology. The result of this melding of the past and the present is, of course, ‘La Futura.’”
Legendary talk radio host Howard Stern was one of the first people to weigh in on the new record, calling it “amazing” in a recent Twitter post.
