Gary Clark Jr launches 2 tracks from next album

Gary Clark Jr has released two tracks from upcoming album The Story Of Sonny Boy Slim.

It’s set for release on September 11 via Warner Bros and the 13-track set includes The Healing and Grinder, both below.

Clark says in an album trailer, also below: “Sonny Boy Slim is me – my mum called me ‘Sonny Boy’ and all the cats on the scene called me ‘Slim.’

“The underlying tone of the album is faith and hope, because that’s what we need.”

The follow-up to 2012’s Blak And Blu is available for pre-order now.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
