Gearing up for the March 30th release of No Mercy in This Land, GRAMMY-Award winning artists BEN HARPER and CHARLIE MUSSELWHITE share a new track from the forthcoming album entitled “Found the One.”
Dancing along to a bouncing, Bo Diddley-esque beat, the track is a jubilant and euphoric expression of love, with Ben singing of his luck in finding “the one.” “Found the One” further showcases the range of emotional depth fans can expect from the album, as it promises to take listeners on a sonic journey through Ben and Charlie’s personal stories of survival. No Mercy in This Land is available for preorder now at www.NoMercyInThisLand.com and will include an IG download of “Found the One,” which is also available to stream at the link here.
“Found The One” is a song about never giving up on finding true love. It’s a song about surrendering to love, getting out of loves way, and letting love do the heavy lifting,” Harper says of the track. “It was also the one song written in the studio during the recording process of the record – Jason Mozersky started hammering out the main riff on guitar and Jimmy Paxson started coming up with this very unique drum pattern using his drum set along with, of all things, a metal trash can! So the two of them started making a wonderful racket and I immediately jumped out from behind the board. Right away, I knew we had to chase this idea down.”
“Found the One” will make its worldwide television debut on Wednesday, March 7th when Ben and Charlie take the stage at The Late Show with Stephen Colbert for a live performance. The pair will then celebrate the album’s release on March 30th by kicking off an international tour that same evening in San Francisco, CA at the famed Fillmore before heading overseas for a string of European dates. Ben and Charlie will make their return to States in May with three nights at Los Angeles’ Troubadour followed by a summer’s worth of shows across North America.
