Chuck Berry's first official music video, "Big Boys" from CHUCK, premiered on NPR Music today.
"When director's Matt Bizer and Curtis Wayne Millard set out to shoot the first-ever music video for Chuck Berry, they had just one goal: have fun. So they turned to choreographer Jeremy Green, who orchestrated a thrilling dance sequence that unfolds at a high school sock hop. The elaborate routine recalls the era's rock-and-roll swing steps and includes a brief Washington Hand Dance performance. But Green makes slight updates with elements of hip-hop that give the choreography more momentum and a slight edge."
Today, The New Yorker has premiered “Wonderful Woman,” the second track from the forthcoming Chuck Berry album ‘CHUCK,’ due out June 9 on Dualtone Records, an Entertainment One Company. ‘CHUCK’ is the final album and first new music in nearly four decades from the founding rock and roll legend, who passed away last month at the age of 90. The New Yorker calls “Wonderful Woman" -- which features special guest Gary Clark Jr. on guitar -- “freewheeling and rambunctious.”
