London Calling is the third studio album by English rock band the Clash. The Clash recorded the album with producer Guy Stevens at Wessex Sound Studios in London during August, September and November 1979, following a change in management and a period of writer’s block for songwriters Joe Strummer and Mick Jones. Bridging a traditional punk rock sound and a new post-punk aesthetic, London Calling reflects the band’s growing interest in styles beyond their punk roots, including reggae, rockabilly, ska, New Orleans R&B, pop, lounge jazz, and hard rock. Themes include social displacement, unemployment, racial conflict, drug use, and the responsibilities of adulthood.
