(PR) At the end of a nine month European tour, Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals landed in a Paris recording studio and completed their new album, LIFELINE in just seven days. The result: a soulful masterpiece with beautifully direct lyrics, undeniable grooves and an effortless energy that recalls the best works of Otis Redding, Bill Withers and Beggars Banquet-era Rolling Stones. Yeah...it's that good.
It's no surprise that most bands today don't record albums live, straight to tape, in one room, no Pro Tools, no auto-tune. There are only a handful of modern artists that can pull it off. Since Ben & The Innocent Criminals were so musically connected after such a long tour, they entered the studio immediately. And on a sixteen track tape machine and one full week in the City of Lights, they successfully recorded and mixed an album that will sit alongside all of your old favorites...just like a classic record should.
Check out the stream for the brand new single "In the Colors" from Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminal's LIFELINE, due out August 28th on Virgin Records. - Listen here
