ZZ Top recently shared a revamped version of their 1971 song “Brown Sugar” as the first single from their upcoming live album, Raw, which is due out on July 22.
Raw was recorded in conjunction with the blues-rock trio’s 2019 documentary That Little Ol’ Band from Texas. It will be released as a tribute to longtime bassist Dusty Hill, who died in July 2021 at age 72. The notable tracks that will appear on Raw include “La Grange,” “Tush” and “Gimme All Your Lovin’.”
“Brown Sugar” first appeared on the band’s 1971 debut, ZZ Top’s First Album, which was released several months before Rolling Stones‘ “Brown Sugar.”
“‘Brown Sugar’ has been sweetening our concert sets for many decades now, so it seemed like the right song to kick off Raw,” Billy Gibbons said in a statement. “The Gruene Hall session was a satisfying return to our roots and a very special circumstance that we’re delighted to share with the friends and fans who have stuck with us all this time.”
