Dark Horse Records has released a new video of Joe Strummer‘s “Fantastic.” The Lance Bangs-directed music video features previously unseen footage from the Joe Strummer Archive.

The video features archival footage shot by Strummer, Dick Rude, Julien Temple, Don Letts, and Josh Cheuse, along with a special cameo by Eddie Vedder.

The previously unreleased track features on Joe Strummer 002: The Mescaleros Years, which dropped on September 16th, 2022, as part of the celebrations honouring Joe’s 70th birthday year.

The box set is the first-ever comprehensive collection highlighting Joe’s work with his post-Clash band, The Mescaleros.

The collection includes remastered editions of all three of the band’s studio albums, plus 15 rare and unreleased tracks spanning the first demos Joe wrote for the Mescaleros, and outtakes of several tracks of Joe’s final recordings with the band. The package is available 4 CD and 7 LP box sets.

“Fantastic” marks one of Strummer’s final recordings, with vocals recorded in December 2002 at the Rockfield Studios in Monmouthshire, Wales, mere weeks after Joe Strummer and The Mescaleros played their last ever live show at Liverpool University on November 22, 2002.
