It’s been nearly 16 years since the world lost iconic punk pioneer, Joe Strummer.

Thanks to The Clash frontman’s widow and producer, we will be gifted with new music this September. Shortly after his sudden death in late 2002, those close to Strummer found an extensive catalog of previously unreleased material.
