La Futura is the upcoming fifteenth studio album by American rock band ZZ Top, and their first in nine years, following Mescalero. La Futura was recorded at The Foambox Recordings in Houston, Texas. The album title and album art were released on ZZ Top's homepage on August 3 at 11:45 a.m. The album will be released September 11, 2012 and contain 10 tracks. “We thought long and hard about what this album should be,” Gibbons says in a press release. “We wanted to recall the directness of our early stuff but not turn our backs on contemporary technology. The result of this melding of the past and the present is, of course, ‘La Futura.’”
Four of the new tracks – ‘I Gotsta Get Paid,’ ‘Chartreuse,’ ‘Consumption’ and ‘Over You’ - debuted June 5, 2012 as an iTunes-only collection titled Texicali, which met with strong sales and glowing reviews. Music Radar summed up the tunes as “ZZ Top crankin’ up some fresh, vital roadhouse blues.” Another track, ‘Flyin’ High,” appropriately made its world premiere in space. The then-unfinished song played on board the Soyuz spacecraft during its launch to the International Space Station thirteen months ago at the request of NASA Astronaut Mike Fossum, a long-time ZZ Top fan and friend who had heard about it in talking with Dusty Hill.
