The second-ever official Chuck Berry video has premiered online. The clip is for the song “Darlin’,” a bluesy, piano-driven ballad from the late rock ‘n’ roll legend’s recently released final studio album, Chuck.
The track features Berry duetting with his daughter, Ingrid, and the song is a sentimental tribute to their relationship. The video incorporates a variety of previously unseen family photos, home movies and performance footage showing Chuck, his wife, and Ingrid at different ages. You can check out the clip at Berry’s official VEVO YouTube channel.
Meanwhile, the Chuck album debuted at #9 on the U.K.’s Official Albums Chart, marking the first time Berry broke into the tally top 10 since 1977.
Chuck hit stores last Friday, less than three months after Berry passed away at the age of 90. Berry produced the album and wrote eight of its 10 tracks. He recorded it in his native St. Louis with members of his longtime backing band, including his son Charles Berry Jr. on guitar, and Ingrid. The record also features guest contributions from roots-rock singer Nathaniel Rateliff, Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello, and acclaimed blues-rock guitarist Gary Clark Jr., as well as from Berry’s grandson, Chuck Berry III.
