Gary Clark Jr.'s new release 'This Land' has just been released, with Rolling Stone calling the song ''a scathing account of Trump-era racism".
In 'This Land', Clark sings a true story about living on "50 acres with a Model A / Right in the middle of Trump Country," next to a neighbour who "can't wait to call the police on me."
In an upcoming Rolling Stone feature, Clark speaks about the very real experiences behind the song. “I think it’s only right at this point in time, if you have a microphone louder than others, to speak out about that anger,” he said. “I haven’t been through shit compared to my people. 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.”
Gary Clark Jr is considered one of the greatest living guitar players with fans ranging from Eric Clapton to Barack Obama. his new album This Land is due out March 1st.
