Ben Harper is an artist who continus to amaze. After working with Mavis Staples, after releasing an incredible album and now working on music for the documentary Black Boys, his sound continues to grow. With his new single “Black Beauty” for the documentary, Harper gives us more beautiful tones with a video that’s just as magical.
The song opens with an orchestral sound against Harper’s vocals. When backing vocals come in the song takes a more soulful and traditional R&B approach. Anthemic in many ways, the song holds many emotions while having an inspirational effect at the same time. The video shows men of all ages in various clips while having a poignant and moving imagery that doesn’t escape the viewer.
The video can be viewed above or on YouTube. The song can be streamed on all streaming services or purchased in all digital outlets. His latest full length Winter Is For Lovers can be purchased in various formats directly from Anti Records. Ben Harper will be on tour beginning July 08 in Argeles-sur-Mer, France at Les Deferlantes until August 11 at Festa di Radio Onda d’Urto in Brescia, Italy. His complete tour scheduling is available here.
