ZZ Top will release Goin’ 50, a career-spanning collection that collects material beginning with the band’s 1969 debut through to their most recent releases. Additionally, two bonus tracks, "Salt Lick" and "Miller's Farm"—a single and b-side, respectively—were recorded in 1969 by the original incarnation of ZZ Top.

Goin’ 50 will be released as a three-CD or five-LP set on August 16 via Warner Bros. Records. A single-CD version with 18 tracks, as well as digital and streaming versions, will be available June 14. 

ZZ Top also recently detailed their 50th anniversary tour, which kicks off August 16 in Washington. The outing will feature support from Cheap Trick, with Lynyrd Skynyrd onboard for two shows in Irvine and Concord, California.
