Gary Clark Jr. is back and has a lot to say on his new single, “This Land.” Opened by a shrill guitar and twisting synths, the conscious bluesman expresses his disbelief with how relevant racism still is in the world and why he isn’t letting its enablers break him.
Clark reflects on these crucial times in a disturbing yet factual visual that was filmed in Austin, Texas.
On March 1, Clark will release This Land as a full-length album via Warner Bros. Records. The LP will be his first effort since 2015’s The Story of Sonny Boy Slim.
To jump-start his new era, Clark paid a visit to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Thursday night (Jan. 10) to perform “This Land” and “Feed the Babies” off his forthcoming work.
Clark will take those two songs and more on the road this spring for this 2019 tour. Tickets are available on his official website.
