ZZ Top have recently released an official music video performance for their 1981 classic “Tube Snake Boogie,” which is taken from their upcoming 11-track live album Raw that is set for release on July 22.
The new video for “Tube Snake Boogie” was recorded live from Gruene Hall in 2020. The upcoming LP was made in connection with ZZ Top’s 2019 Netflix documentary, That Little Ol’ Band From Texas, dedicated “in righteous memory of Dusty Hill” who died on July 27, 2021, at the age of 72.
Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard said in the new album’s liner notes:
“It was, in a very real way, a return to our roots. Just us and the music, no audience of thousands, no concession stands, no parking lot social hour, no phalanx of tour busses. Just us and the music.
“We knew right then it was a very special circumstance, all of us in the same place at the same time and what a time it most certainly was!
“It was as bare bones as when we first started touring in a behemoth Chrysler station wagon, driving vast stretches between those early far-flung shows under blackened Texas skies and first hearing our records on the radio. We were bonded as brothers.”
Raw will be released by Shelter Records/BMG on 180 gram vinyl, CD and through digital platforms. Check out the tracklisting and watch their latest music video below.
