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.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
