Dark Horse Records celebrates today’s release of 'Assembly,' the newly remastered collection of solo cuts from Joe Strummer, the former frontman of The Clash, with the world premiere of a video for “I Fought The Law.” The song was famously covered by Joe’s former band, The Clash, and this newly unearthed version was recorded live in London by Joe and his band The Mescaleros.

ASSEMBLY showcases carefully curated remastered singles, fan favorites, and archival rarities from the Joe Strummer solo catalog, including “Coma Girl,” “Johnny Appleseed,” and “Yalla Yalla” (with The Mescaleros) to his iconic rendition of Bob Marley’s “Redemption Song” and soundtrack contributions like “Love Kills” (from the 1986 film, Sid and Nancy). Remastered by three-time GRAMMY® Award-winning engineer Paul Hicks (The Beatles / John Lennon / The Rolling Stones / David Bowie), the 16-track compilation features three previously unreleased versions of classic tracks by Joe’s former band The Clash, including the never-before-heard home recording of “Junco Partner” and electrifying live performances of “Rudie Can’t Fail” and “I Fought The Law”, recorded by Joe Strummer and The Mescaleros at London’s Brixton Academy on November 24, 2001. In addition, ASSEMBLY includes exclusive liner notes written especially for this collection by musician, Jakob Dylan.
