The four track release will be a taster of their forthcoming brand new album
The Texicali EP will be released digitally on 5 June and it follows the appearance of the band's new song, 'I Gotsta Get Paid' on an online advert for Jeremiah Weed.
The EP will include four tracks off their upcoming Rick Rubin-produced album:
I Gotsta Get Paid
"Based on the visibility of the 'Gotsta Get Paid' song, we decided to make available more of a taste of the album than just the one song," Rubin told Musicradar.com. "That's the beauty of the new digital landscape; we can put out what we want when we want, in the best service of the artist."
Adds Billy Gibbons: "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. 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."
