Gov\u2019t Mule

Gov’t Mule have released an animated video for their cover of ZZ Top’s Just Got Paid.

The song features on their latest album The Tel-Star Sessions, which was released last month via Provogue/Mascot Label group.

The record features never-before released demos recorded by Warren Haynes, Allen Woody and Matt Abts in June 1994 at Tel-Star Studios in Bradenton, Florida.

The collection of songs were intended to make up the trio’s debut album – but those plans were scrapped, with their self-titled first record eventually being released in 1995.

Speaking about an album of all-new material, Haynes said earlier this year: “I have a couple of songs written that are very much departures from anything we’ve ever done.

“I have a feeling that the overall spirit of the record will combine some directions we’ve never explored with directions going back to the very beginning of the band.”

Gov’t Mule are currently on the road across North America, with headline dates mixed with appearances with Blackberry Smoke and ZZ Top.
