Tuesday 10pm: Feature LP: Gary Clark Jr. – This Land (2019)

This Land is the third studio album by American blues rock musician Gary Clark Jr., and was released on February 22, 2019 by Warner Bros. Records.

The album was announced with a video for lead single “This Land,” directed by Austin, Texas-based filmmaker Savannah Leaf. The song and video highlight racism in American society, with Leaf recreating aspects of Clark’s childhood as described by the musician to the director, and Clark’s response to the policies of President Donald Trump since he was elected in 2016. The track was inspired by “This Land Is Your Land” by Woody Guthrie, with Clark commenting in an interview with American Songwriter: “It’s one of the first songs we learn, and we sing it together … It’s like the Pledge of Allegiance … And when you’re kids, everybody’s together. You don’t see differences until you get older, and older people influence you to think about other people a certain way. I just want to get back to singing that song like we were kids again, you know?.” Writer Dan Solomon, in Texas Monthly, described “This Land” as “perhaps the first truly great song of Clark’s career, a defiant, statement-piece anthem that fits alongside pieces like Childish Gambino’s “This is America” and Beyoncé’s “Formation” in its vocal addressing of racism in America.”
