The blues guitarist and singer has already released two other songs–in addition to a live debut–from the album including “This Land”, “Feed The Babies“, and “I Walk Alone“. The latest track, which arrived via streaming services on Friday, is titled “Pearl Cadillac”, and hears Clark returning to the smooth and soulful ballad-style of playing for which he’s famously known.“Pearl Cadillac” features some scorching guitar work from Clark, who utilizes his fuzz pedal to launch the listener into a blissful orbit of notation throughout the new five-minute song. Of the three prior tunes from his new album which have been shared so far, “Pearl Cadillac” really sounds like the moment which his guitar-loving fans have been waiting for. The levels of distortion coming out of Clark’s guitar amps is perfectly balanced by that soulful and warm voice of his. If the latest release from the guitarist is any indication on what else fans can expect to hear on This Land, it should be one hell of an album cycle from the bluesman from Texas in the months to come.The official recording of “Pearl Cadillac” may have only arrived on Friday, but Clark has been mixing the new tune into his live setlists over the last few months.
