Ben Harper – Don’t Let Me Disappear 

Release Date: Out Now

I really enjoyed Ben Harper’s work with Mavis Staples in 2019 but it’s great to see him back standing on his own two feet again. Harper’s new single ‘Don’t Let Me Disappear’ has a gentle and soothing feel to the finger picked acoustic notes and Harper’s voice is perfectly pitched to match this mood with soul and pathos in ample supply. The themes of isolation and loneliness are timely at a time when so many of us are finding it hard to relate to ourselves without the context of others but there’s hope in the chorus. Harper does that thing of turning a soulful lament in to an angsty burst of energy that shatters the windows so that you can smell the fresh air around you. Great to have you back, Mr Harper.
