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.

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
