Gilby Clarke Premieres New Single, ‘The Gospel Truth’

Courtesy: Golden Robot Records

Gilby Clarke premiered his latest single this week.

Clarke (ex-Guns N’ Roses, Kings of Chaos, Candy) debuted his new single ‘The Gospel Truth‘ Monday.  The song is the second single from his forthcoming album The Gospel Truth. It comes on the heels of his most recent single, ‘Rock N Roll Is Getting Louder,’ which was premiered in February.  Its video premiered in April.

The musical arrangement at the center of ‘The Gospel truth’ is centered on its bass line and time keeping.  Clarke’s vocal delivery joins with the song’s guitar line and even a horn line to flesh out the arrangement even more.  The whole is a mid-tempo composition that bridges the rock of the late 80s and early 90s to make its whole.

The song’s lyrical theme focuses on the concept of speaking the truth.  According to information provided about the single, that topic is approached here through Clarke reflecting on his upbringing in the Catholic church.  He uses that experience, the information states, to encourage listeners “to be brave, say what you mean and mean what you say.”
