Video Premiere: Joseph Arthur – The Ballad Of Boogie Christ
Classic Rock is proud to premiere the latest video from Joseph Arthur – view The Ballad Of Boogie Christ below.
It’s the title track of Grammy-nominated Arthur’s latest album, on sale now.
He says of his tenth record: “I don’t know that there’s a beginning, middle and end to the story, but there are definitely experiences, situations and perspectives that point in those directions. I wanted to let the listener fill in some of the blanks without telling the whole story in a straight-ahead way.
“I’ve heard David Bowie talk about how Ziggy Stardust and some other records were the beginnings of screenplays that he just never finished. I could really see this becoming something deeper and bigger than just an album.
“Chuck Prophet reminded me that there’s always the Great American Novel. That’s what I’ve been wanting to achieve with this album.”
Arthur – who’s been name-checked by Peter Gabriel, Michael Stipe and Lou Reed, among others – makes a brief tour of the UK next week as part of a wider European trek:
Oct 09: Leicester Musician
Oct 10: Bristol Grain Barge
Oct 11: London Heath Street Baptist Church
