(Gibson) ZZ Top's new album is now finished, being mixed, and will be released in the fall of 2011. Billy Gibbons tells Mojo magazine, "It sounds and feels like Tres Hombres, with a few elements of the Eliminator period thrown in. A pretty wide range, from basic blues to slightly more fancy stuff.

Songs recorded include "Flyin' High," "More Slower Blues." "Chartreuse" and "Have A Little Mercy." The latter is, says Gibbons, inspired by early B.B. King cuts.

The sessions have been executive-produced by Rick Rubin (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Johnny Cash, Metallica, etc). Gibbons adds, "The thing about Rick is he pushes the artists to spend more time reaching down deeper than they normally would." more on this story
