London Calling is the third studio album by English rock band The Clash. It was originally released as a double album in the United Kingdom on 14 December 1979 by CBS Records, and in the United States in January 1980 by Epic Records.[1]

The Clash recorded the album at Wessex Sound Studios in London during August, September and November 1979, following a change in management and a period of writer's black for Joe Strummer and Mick Jones, the band's lead vocalists, guitarists, and lyricists. Marking a bridge between a traditional punk rock sound and a new post-punk aesthetic, London Calling reflects the band's growing interest in a range of styles beyond their punk roots, including reggae, rockabilly, ska, New Orleans R&B, pop, lounge jazz, and hard rock. Themes explored in the songs include social displacement, unemployment, racial conflict, drug use, and the responsibilities of adulthood.
