Gary Clark Jr. Announces New Album ‘THIS LAND’ & Shares Single

11

Guitarist Gary Clark Jr. will release a new album entitled THIS LAND on March 1 via Warner Bros. Records. Clark Jr. shared the politically-charged title track from the LP, which he will perform live tonight on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.

The video for “This Land” was directed by Savanah Leaf in the guitarist’s hometown of Austin. Clark Jr. appeared on Zane’s World Record on Beats 1 on Apple Music earlier today. Here’s what he had to say about the title track from his third studio album, which deals with the racism Gary has faced:

I’m just basically saying we’re here, everybody’s here. We all deserve an equal shot and let’s get over the bullshit. I grew up in the south, in Austin, Texas. I had a few situations down there with some racism, and some Confederate flags, and people calling me out of their trucks, and all that kind of stuff. It wasn’t an everyday thing, but I recently had an incident in my neighborhood with that, in front of my kid. Everything that was going on in November 2017, around that time, just the past couple years have been kind of crazy. Climate’s been a little bit wild. I had a track, a beat that I laid down, I didn’t have any lyrics over it and it just … I was just kind of sitting in there and it just came to me. I just went in there and fired off.

Gary Clark Jr. kicks off an extensive tour in support of the album on March 9 in Miami Beach. Watch the “This Land” video below:
