For a while now, we’ve had an eye on Gary Clark Jr. The guitar slinger puts on spectacular performances, he doesn’t mince words on his music, and he’s always been worthy of listening to. On his new single “This Land,” he’s pissed off and we’re loving it. The first single from his upcoming album This Land, Clark Jr. isn’t playing around with intent, while giving fans powerful imagery and even more powerful words.
Coming from the South, the Austin performer wastes no time in showing you the darkness of children growing up in a racially divided world. Add to that the vitriol of Trump’s America, and Gary Clark Jr. doesn’t want you to think things have gotten better, when they obviously haven’t. This is Gary Clark Jr. at his finest, letting his voice do the talking with powerful words about our nation’s current state of race relations.
You can stream the song on all streaming sites, you can watch the video on repeat above or on YouTube, and you can purchase the song in all digital shops. This Land is available for preorder directly from Warner Bros. Records in multiple bundles and formats, before its release date of March 01. Gary Clark Jr. will be on tour in support of the album beginning March 09 at Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater in Miami Beach until May 24-26 in Napa, CA at the Bottle Rock Festival. A complete list of his upcoming tour dates can be found here.
