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.

“Vicious”

Lou Reed | 1972

Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
