Van Zant have released a lyric video for their track Red White & Blue.

It’s taken from the Lynyrd Skynyrd and .38 Special brothers Johnny and Donnie Van Zant’s upcoming album Red White & Blue: Live.

The performance was captured at the pair’s show show in Valdosta, Georgia, in 2006. It was recorded by Donnie’s longtime bandmate Larry Junstrom.

The track originally appeared on Lynyrd Skynyrd’s 2003 offering Vicious Cycle and was written by the Van Zants along with Brad and Brett Warren.

Donnie Van Zant said of the album: “The plan was always to enjoy ourselves and have fun and this recording captures a moment when we had a great night.”

Red White & Blue: Live is available for pre-order.

Meanwhile, Lynyrd Skynyrd have scheduled a string of US dates over the coming months.
