BEN HARPER IN STORES NOW!

Ben Harper
Ben Harper' new album, Give Till It’s Gone onis now in stores via Virgin Records. This - the 10th in Harper's career - is his first solo album since 2006’s Both Sides of the Gun.

Recorded mostly at Jackson Browne studio in Los Angeles, Give features two tracks co-written by Ringo Starr. Lead single “Rock N’ Roll Is Free” stems from inspiration Harper picked up opening for rock legend Neil Young last summer in London. “I’ve never made a record that was such a timeline,” Harper says in a statement. “It’s a real extension of the last year and half in my life, and all these sounds are inspired by my experiences. It’s as honest a musical statement as I could make.”

The first single "Don't Give Up On Me Now" is now on radios and Harper will be hitting the road for a string of tour dates leading up to and in support of the new record.
