Gary Clark Jr. – JPEG RAW

Gary Clark Jr. Returns With First New Music In Nearly Five Years

January 28th, 2024

Grammy Award winning artist Gary Clark Jr. has released four new tracks — “Maktub,” “JPEG RAW,” “This Is Who We Are,” “Hyperwave,” and “Habits” — and nnounced his much-anticipated upcoming album, JPEG RAW, set for release on March 22 via Warner Records. This new body of work signals a brave new world for Clark’s ever-expanding creative palette. Clark’s lyrics are pointed, deeply personal, outspoken and socially conscious with occasional forays into rap and spoken word from Clark himself. 

JPEG RAW is Clark’s first album since 2019’s critically lauded This Land, which became his third consecutive top 10 on the Billboard 200 chart and garnered three Grammy Awards, including Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance (“This Land”) and Best Contemporary Blues Album (This Land). Clark’s first Grammy win was awarded in 2014 for Best Traditional R&B Performance (“Please Come Home”). 

Since its release, the singer-songwriter has toured extensively and stretched his wings as an actor, playing American blues legend Arthur “Big Boy” Crudup in Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis, which received eight Academy Award nominations.
