Texan blues guitarist Gary Clark Jr has shared his latest single, “What About Us,” from his forthcoming album, This Land.
A rousing blues-rock track, Clark Jr’s new release is politically charged in a similar vein as previous single “This Land,” which also references the fictional character Mr Williams.
The black-and-white video, directed by Savanah Leaf, also makes a bold statement. Set in a trailer park, it showcases working class individuals and families in varying situations: A black father teaches his son to play guitar, a couple smoke cigarettes and two youths cavort in a paddling pool.
Gary Clark Jr will release his fifth studio album, This Land, this Friday. Watch the video for “What About Us” here:
