3x GRAMMY® Award-winning singer-songwriter/musician/producer Ben Harper has shared ‘We Need To Talk About It’, available now through all digital streaming providers. Watch the official visualiser below:
Produced by Harper and GRAMMY® Award-winner Sheldon Gomberg, “We Need To Talk About It” marks the first single from Harper’s eagerly anticipated, fiercely personal, soulful album, BLOODLINE MAINTENANCE, due via his new deal with Chrysalis Records on Friday, July 22. Pre-orders are available now HERE.
Propelled by Harper’s blisteringly funky guitar, ‘We Need To Talk About It’ defiantly addresses the wounds of slavery through a sharp-edged call-and-response with gospel-fuelled backing vocals and pounding rhythms augmented by the distinctive sound of the African talking drum.
