ZZ TOP PREMIERE NEW SONG IN BEER COMMERCIAL

ZZ Top's latest song "I've Got To Get Paid" is featured in the new online commercial for Jeremiah Weed beer. Ultimate Classic Rock posted: "In the apparently unscripted spot, stage lights and a repeating drum beat emanating from an otherwise normal-looking store beer cooler lure a series of customers into opening the refrigerator doors, revealing ZZ Top in all their full-bearded glory, performing the new song as if they're headlining an arena."
There's no word as to whether the track is the first single for their long-delayed first album with producer Rick Rubin, or simply the jingle for the beer company. Guitarist Billy Gibbons told Noise 11 the album's holdup is due to Rubin -- not the band: "I guess the irony of the whole picture is the band is wondering, 'Where is this thing? When do we hear it?' But Rick's funny like that. We've been friends for, gosh, as long as I can remember -- triple decades. And this is the first time that we've broken the mold as business pals.
