Blues guitarist/singer Gary Clark Jr. has released the second single set to appear on his forthcoming solo album, This Land. The new song is titled “I Walk Alone”, and follows the previously-shared “This Land” which arrived early last month to go with the album’s announcement. Clark had also debuted another new song titled, “Feed The Babies”, with help from Jon Batiase during his live performance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert back on January 10th as well.“I Walk Alone” hears Clark returning to his bluesy-rock roots, as the song features an abundance of heavy distortion to go with a pulsating drum beat. The heavy, slightly darker instrumentation of the song is balanced by the glistening sounds of a keyboard, which ring out every so often to go with as Clark’s vocal performance. For someone who’s isn’t quite known for their vocal octave range, Clark really impresses in reaching a pretty high vocal register throughout the 3:45-minute recording. Speaking of the vocals, Clark doesn’t hide the fact that he’s really channeling his inner-darkness while belting out the lyrics, “I move in darkness ’cause the darkness always soothes me/It’s natural, but I don’t wanna be alone.”Fans can tune into the official audio in the video below to hear the new song in full.Gary Clark Jr. – “I Walk Alone”[Video: Gary Clark Jr.]Clark also took to his social media outlets on Thursday to share the announcement that he’ll be making his performance debut on Saturday Night Live later this month by appearing on the episode scheduled to air on February 16th. Coincidentally, the televised performance will take place the day following his 35th birthday on February 15th! Don’t look now, but 2019 is shaping up to be what should be a pretty solid year for the popular blues guitarist.This Land is scheduled for a March 1st release via Warner Bros. Records.
