ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons has a new album on the way. It seems when musicians do a solo project, they want it to sound as different from the band’s music as possible, which makes sense. It’s called a solo project so you can be identified as yourself rather than a member of a group. In Gibbons’ case, his latest song couldn’t sound more different than ZZ Top.
Up until late last year, Gibbons says all of the music he was creating felt too familiar, so there was no rush to release it. He then decided a more Cuban sound was what he wanted to go for. His new album ‘Perfectamundo’ will be released on November 6th. You can read more and hear Gibbons’ new song here.
