On June 4th , 2021 Billy F Gibbons released his third solo album “Hardware”. The album is more of a rock affair then it’s predecessors. You can listen to Billy chat with me about the album here.

Back in March 2021 Billy announced the coming of the album with the release of it’s first single and video for the surf rock song “West Coast Junkie”.

“Hardware” was recorded in a desert studio with the core band of Billy with guitarist Austin Hanks and drummer Matt Sorum formerly of Guns N’ Roses and The Cult, who also served as one of the album’s producers.

Hanks and Sorum were the band that toured with Billy behind his second solo album “The Big Bad Blues”.

“Hardware” is more of a rock affair with the desert influencing some tracks, like the spoken word of “Desert High”.

The single “My Lucky Card” featured a barroom jam video.

That was followed up with the video for “She’s On Fire”.

With this album Billy also has “Under The Hood” behind the scenes video features for the album, you can see Episode 1 here.
