Gary Clark Jr. has released a video for “Grinder,” a track from his upcoming album, The Story of Sonny Boy Slim, and you can watch it below.

The bluesy track has loads of Clark’s gritty guitar work and an extended solo on the outro.

The Story of Sonny Boy Slim comes out September 11 on Warner Bros. Records and is the followup to his acclaimed debut, 2012’s Blak and Blu. The track list is below.

Clark wrote, produced and arranged the album, and played the majority of the instruments himself. His sisters, Shawn and Savannah Clark, perform on the record as backing vocalists. As Clark said in a promo video for the new album, “The underlying tone of this album is faith and hope, really, at the end of the day. ’Cause that’s all we need.”

Clark also has announced a fall/spring headlining tour that will take him across the U.S. Every ticket bought online will come with a standard digital download of The Story of Sonny Boy Slim. You can see his tour dates below.

The Story of Sonny Boy Slim is available for preorder and includes instant downloads of “The Healing” and “Grinder.”
