Ben Harper & Charlie Musselwhite New Album/Song “No Mercy In This Land”
GRAMMY-Award winning, multiplatinum-selling artists Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite have collaborated once again on a brand new album album, No Mercy in This Land, available worldwide on March 30, 2018. The title track has been embedded below.
No Mercy in This Land is the first of new music from the pair since the 2013’s Get Up!, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Blues Albums Chart and won a GRAMMY Award in 2014 for “Best Blues Album.” A musical expression of the kinship between the two, the album recounts both Ben and Charlie’s personal stories and adds to the sonic history of American struggle and survival.
“Charlie Musselwhite is that very rare and hallowed place where blues past, present and future collide,” says Ben about his collaborator and friend. “He transforms notes into emotions that feel both hauntingly familiar and brand new, as if hearing them for the first time every time. He is a living legend whose harmonica playing should be beamed into outer space to search for other life forms.”
“On stage or in the studio – working with Ben Harper holds the same excitement I experienced working with Chicago blues legends back in the day,” says Charlie. “I think it is safe to say that Ben has reinvented the Blues in a great way: playing modern while preserving the feel. I am honored and privileged to be a participant in this project.”
