Hear Billy Gibbons and John Fogerty Team Up on New Song, "The Holy Grail"

John Fogerty and ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons—who are currently busy crisscrossing America together on the Blues and Bayous tour—have released a new song, "The Holy Grail."

On the new track, which was written by Fogerty, Gibbons and the former Creedence Clearwater Revival frontman trade both guitar licks and vocals. You can check the song out for yourself above.

“I am so happy to be playin' and singin' with the Reverend BFG. That Sharp Dressed Man, himself," Fogerty said in a press release. "This is the Holy Grail!”

“It’s not an overstatement to say that writing a song with John Fogerty is a genuine bonus," Gibbons added. "It’s fair to say that John and I are both pumped about our collaboration and we think this new one called “Holy Grail” holds true with some great storytelling and some solid guitars movin’ the number right along. It begs a shout of, 'Turn it up!’”

"The Holy Grail" will be available on all digital platforms tomorrow, June 8.
