Clark, proud to have his music included in the World Series televised coverage on Fox Sports, said:

In a relatively short span of time, Gary Clark Jr. has made an indelible mark for himself in the music world. He has been called “the chosen one” by Rolling Stone Magazine, and “the future of music” by President Barack Obama. Rarely has an artist alchemized the sounds of the great African-American music forms; blues, soul, jazz, hip-hop and rock-and-roll, into one genre-defying statement of unique power, craft and social significance as Clark has done on his forthcoming album. Details of the album’s release will be revealed in January 2019.
Gary Clark Jr. will begin his tour on October 28 in San Antonio, TX, and will include a four-night run of sold-out shows at The Fonda Theater in Los Angeles. Additional dates to be announced soon.
