CD Release Date 22nd July
LP Release Date 30th September
Ben Harper releases his eagerly anticipated, fiercely personal soulful album, BLOODLINE MAINTENANCE.
The new album is a work largely inspired by the loss of a long-time friend and the lingering influence of a mercurial and charismatic father, BLOODLINE MAINTENANCE
sees Harper performing the majority of the instruments on his own, spanning guitar, bass, drums and an eclectic assortment of percussions including a plastic toy snare. His 17th
studio LP – and first since 2020’s instrumental WINTER IS FOR LOVERS
–and the first non-instrumental solo album of new songs since 2016. The new album is further fuelled by Harper’s signature lap steel, supercharged through a powerful Dumble amplifier creating a truly unruly tone that Harper describes as “a sort of a merging of Robert Johnson and Jimi Hendrix.
