On the heels of his latest work with Mavis Staples, Ben Harper isn’t slowing down anytime soon. Ahead of a run of tour dates, Harper has just released a new single that not only grows his sound, but shows a softer side to his music. His new single, “Uneven Days” is a piano driven ballad that proves that Harper can bring us together whether he’s utilizing the guitar or the keys.
The balance between the piano and Harper’s vocals offers a sound that’s tender and restrained. Harper isn’t offering up his uptempo sounds here, but rather going deep and delivering a heartfelt track. The stride of the song is slower and the emotions are hight, yet it delivers and never really deters your ears from beginning to end.
“Uneven Days” can be streamed on all platforms or purchased in all digital outlets via Anti- Records. Ben Harper is on tour tonight at Ravenna Festival in Ravenna, Italy until November 22 at Wonderfront Music & Arts Festival in San Diego, CA. A complete list of his tour dates can be found here.
