Gary Clark Jr. Unleashes A Flood Of Bluesy Balladry On New Single "The Healing"

Just days ago, Gary Clark Jr. announced that he had big plans for his forthcoming The Story Of Sonny Boy Slim LP. And today, we’re getting our very first taste of the record with the electrified blues of the album’s lead-off single “The Healing.” Delivering on his promise of some how diving deeper into the delta traditions, the new easy-burning cut is built with massive nods to SRV/Albert King-styled guitar weeps, anchored by drums that are certainly more hip-hop than classic blues shuffle. The follow-up to 2012’s breakthrough Blak & Blu LP is slated for a September 11th release via Warner Bros. Records, featuring Clark on virtually every instrument. Listen to Gary Clark Jr.’s blazing new single “The Healing” below and preorder the record on iTunes today or head over to his site to grab a copy on CD or wax.
