An artist named Jamaica Rafael has released an album featuring "a cameo by Ben Harper singing and playing acoustic slide on a traditional folk song arranged as a duet by Jamaica and Ben called 'Just Kiss Me Once'" (quote is from http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/jamaicarafael) . The song is available at Amazon, iTunes, & cdbaby. Here are the links:

Just Kiss Me Once (feat. Ben Harper)
Jamaica Rafael | Format: MP3 Download
From the Album California Girl
Original Release Date: March 29, 2011

**********************************************************
Ben plays a beautiful acoustic slide guitar solo at the end of the song that sounds like classic, old school, 'Welcome To The Cruel World' era Ben. I love this song!

I wasn't familiar with Jamaica Rafael, so I searched for a little info. Here are some links:

Ben Harper
Give Till It's Gone
5/17

After five records with various bands, for his 10th disc, Harper assembled a broad range of solo material, from acoustic ballads ("Feel Love") to feedback-tinged rave-ups ("Rock N' Roll Is Free"). He recorded the set last year at Jackson Browne's studio – Browne sings harmony on one track, and Ringo Starr, with whom Harper has recorded and toured, played drums on two more. "It's the most Beatles-sounding song I've ever done," Harper says of the trippy "Spilling Faith," "but it has an actual Beatle on it, so I have license!"
