Blues guitarist Gary Clark Jr. will release his third full-length album This Land on March 1.
Today, the musician shared the video for the LP’s title track. According to a press release, the “powerful and controversial video delves in on Clark’s experience growing up in the south.”
Clark recently sat down with Rolling Stone to discuss his new, politically-charged approach to his music. “I haven’t been through shit compared to my people,” he told the publication. “But if I can do anything with my opportunity, and say thank you to Dr. Martin Luther King for sacrificing your life so that I can have a microphone … that’s the least I can do.”
The “This Land” video was shot in rural Texas, near Clark’s home and his tour in support of the new album kicks off on March 9.
