ZZ Top‘s Billy F. Gibbons recently released a video for his solo single “She’s On Fire” from his third album Hardware.
The visual was shot at Pioneertown in California’s high desert. The temperature at the location of the shoot, Rimroch Ranch, reportedly hovered above 115 degrees.
Hardware features drummer Matt Sorum and guitarist Austin Hanks. Gibbons produced the album, assisted by Sorum, Mike Fiorention and engineer Chad Shlosser.
Gibbons recorded the album at Escape Studio in California’s high desert, near Palm Springs.
“We holed up in the desert for a few weeks in the heat of the summer and that in itself was pretty intense,” said Gibbons. “To let off steam we just ‘let it rock’ and that’s what ‘Hardware’ is really all about. For the most part, it’s a raging rocker but always mindful of the desert’s implicit mystery.”
He added, “The desert settings, replete with shifting sands, cacti and rattlesnakes makes for the kind of backdrop that lends an element of intrigue reflected in the sounds created out there.”
