Ben Harper

Give Till It's Gone 5/17 

After five records with various bands, for his 10th disc, Harper assembled a broad range of solo material, from acoustic ballads ("Feel Love") to feedback-tinged rave-ups ("Rock N' Roll Is Free"). He recorded the set last year at Jackson Browne's studio – Browne sings harmony on one track, and Ringo Starr, with whom Harper has recorded and toured, played drums on two more. "It's the most Beatles-sounding song I've ever done," Harper says of the trippy "Spilling Faith," "but it has an actual Beatle on it, so I have license!"
