(Radio.com) The first time Jack Johnson met Ben Harper, Harper was singing one of Johnson's songs. Fifteen years and numerous collaborations later, the two still remain friends and worked together on one of the tracks off Johnson's forthcoming album, From Here to Now to You.

In a new interview with Radio.com, Johnson recalled the very first time he met Harper and how they came to work together on the new song, "Change."

"When I look back to the very first time we met, I heard him sing some of my lyrics when he was walking up behind me," Johnson told Radio.com. "I just couldn't believe that he would have listened to it enough that he could have memorized the melody and the words to one of my songs and how much that meant to me."

Johnson said recording the song "Change" was "a real nice experience," and said he looked up to Harper and his music long before he even knew him."He came into the studio and recorded that song with us," Johnson recalled.

"He really got into it and he sang along. He sang the harmony of the song and played some Weissenborn slide guitar. That was really neat, to think that we've known each other for almost 15 years now." more on this story
