Exclusive Video: Ben Harper's "In The Colors"

July 9, 2007 5:35 PM ET

Now that you've got the scoop on Ben Harper's upcoming album, see the singer-guitarist in action. Here's the video for "In the Colors," the first single from Lifeline, due August 28. This song finds the suddenly profilic Harper --just last year he released the double-CD Both Sides of the Gun -- back in "Steal My Kisses" form. Though the practice-room video motif has been done a thousand times, the bright natural lighting works well with the sunny, laid-back vibe of the track. Check it out.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
