Back in November last year, we reported that Wolfmother had contributed to an unknown tribute album. The news has been revealed in the last few days that the album is a tribute to Texan blues rock trio ZZ Top, due to be released in October this year.
The eleven-song collection, entitled A Tribute from Friends, is due to be released on October 11, 2011, and features covers from a wide range of artists including Nickelback, Mastodon, and even Wyclef Jean.
Wolfmother’s contribution is a cover of “Cheap Sunglasses”, a single originally released in 1980 from the album Degüello. The song will be the fifth track on the album, after Nickelback’s cover of “Legs” and before “Got Me Under Pressure” by Duff McKagan’s Loaded.
