Quote from Charlie Musselwhite on next album with Ben

Here's a quote from Charlie on his next collaboration with Ben:

“I have a new album that’ll be ready when I come to Australia,” he reveals, “and Ben Harper and I have one in the can, as they say. It’ll probably be a year before it comes out. You never know. There’s all kinds of irons in the fire. We’ll see what happens.”

The quote comes from a recent interview with Charlie done by Shane Pinnegar from X-press Magazine. Here's the link to check out the full interview:

Sojourner Truth Radio

Thursday January 8, 2015:

"Thursday a Sojourner Truth first: we spend the hour with world famous and three-time Grammy winner singer and songwriter Ben Harper. In a live performance, he debuts for the first time on radio his brand new song “Call it what it is.”

We have a wide ranging discussion about: his early inspiration and struggles breaking into the music industry; growing up in a bi-racial family in Southern California; the inter-relationship between art and activism; Ferguson, Eric Garner and the #BlackLivesMatter movement; his upcoming reunion with his original band “Innocent Criminals” and much more."
