Ben Harper Biography from Amazon

"I've never made a record that was such a timeline," says Ben Harper of his new album, Give Till It's Gone. "It's a real extension of the last year and half in my life, and all these sounds are inspired by my experiences. It's as honest a musical statement as I could make."

It looks like this song has been released in France as the first single from Give Till It's Gone. I found several French sites with short clips of the new song, but I couldn't find the full version. I will keep looking and post it here if I find it. It sounds great! I can't wait to hear the entire song!
