The four new songs, available via iTunes and all digital retail outlets, offer a preview of the group’s full-length album, as yet untitled, that will be released on American Recordings late this summer or early fall.
“We were itching to get some new music out before the full album release; making available these four tracks seems like a good way to accomplish that most expeditiously,” said Top’s Billy F. Gibbons. “Dusty, Frank and I are happy with what’s been accomplished in the studio so we figured we’d provide some hot and tasty ‘hors d’oeuvres’ before the main course is served this fall.”
Gibbons helped produce the tracks along with the venerable Rick Rubin. Song titles include “I Gotsta Get Paid,” “Chartreuse,” “Over You” and “Consumption.”
