Gary Clark Jr: Album Details, Fall Tour Dates


Gary Clark Jr. has revealed more details of his previously announced full-length debut record. Blak and Blu, out October 22, was produced by Mike Elizondo (Dr. Dre, Mastodon, Fiona Apple), Rob Cavallo (Green Day, My Chemical Romance) and Gary Clark Jr. Apart from Clark on guitar, vocals & trumpet, Blak and Blu features performances from drummer J.J. Johnson, keyboardist Zac Rae, and Elizondo on bass on many of the tracks. Lead track "Ain't Messin 'Round" is now available to hear below.

In addition to 12 of Clark’s original compositions, Blak and Blu also features a 13th song – a blistering cover of Little Johnny Taylor’s (popularized by Albert Collins), “If You Love Me Like You Say / Third Stone From The Sun” (Jimi Hendrix), which has become a live favorite and high watermark during Clark’s set.

Gary will also be hitting the road for a round of Fall U.S. tour dates, beginning October 10 in Austin and wrapping up on November 16 at the legendary Fillmore in San Francisco. See all the dates below.
