The Bluesy rocker Gary Clark Jr. made a interesting cover of Beatle’s “Come Together” for the Justice League movie, that will be on theaters this month. Now a oficial video for the song was released.
Clark recorded the song for the Justice League movie soundtrack and fittingly, the video ties in to the film.
Take a look:
Clark will also perform the song Nov. 2 on The Late Late Show With James Corden. The Justice League film opens Nov. 17.
“Come Together was written primarily by John Lennon and credited to Lennon–McCartney. The song is the opening track on the album Abbey Road and was also released as a single coupled with “Something”. The song reached the top of the charts in the United States and peaked at No. 4 in the United Kingdom.
“Come Together” started as Lennon’s attempt to write a song for Timothy Leary’s campaign for governor of California against Ronald Reagan, which promptly ended when Leary was sent to prison for possession of marijuana:
The thing was created in the studio. It’s gobbledygook; Come Together was an expression that Leary had come up with for his attempt at being president or whatever he wanted to be, and he asked me to write a campaign song.
I tried and tried, but I couldn’t come up with one. But I came up with this, Come Together, which would’ve been no good to him – you couldn’t have a campaign song like that, right?
Beatles historian Jonathan Gould has suggested that the song has only a single “pariah-like protagonist” and Lennon was “painting another sardonic self-portrait”.
