Ben Harper returns with Give Till It’s Gone

Advertisement

    Ben Harper’s musical endeavors are about as predictable as Jack White’s. One second he’s playing Bonnaroo with Relentless7, the next he can be found on late night TV (with a giant hat to boot) as a member of Fistful of Mercy. For his 10th full length effort, however, Harper will go back to basic as he unveils his first solo album since 2006.

    Due for release May 17th via Virgin Records, Give Till It’s Gone was recorded at the Los Angeles studio of Jackson Browne. Browne also makes a guest appearance on the album, as does Ringo Starr, who co-wrote and drums on two tracks.

    According to an issued press release, the end result seeks to examine “the disparity between the man [Harper] is today and the man he endeavors to become… While its songs are highly personal, Give Till It’s Gone illuminates the universal struggle to find meaning and fully engage with life and one another.”

    Harper will support the album’s release by headlining a trio of festivals this spring: Byron Bay Bluesfest in Australia, the New Zealand Blues & Roots All Music Festival, and the Wakarusa Festival in Ozark, AR. He’ll also play additional festivals and venues around the world, with most dates still forthcoming.
