Debuts “Yard Sale (Live From The Kitchen)” Music Video

With Jack Johnson


Out Friday, June 2 on Chrysalis Records




Tickets Available HERE

Singer-songwriter, musician and producer Ben Harper shares his new music video “Yard Sale (Live From The Kitchen)” for a special acoustic version of his single “Yard Sale” featuring Jack Johnson. The new video finds the frequent collaborators at Ben’s home for a stripped down version of the new track ahead of the release of his new studio album WIDE OPEN LIGHT, out Friday, June 2 via Chrysalis Records. 



The follow up to his GRAMMY-nominated record BLOODLINE MAINTENANCE, WIDE OPEN LIGHT is described by Ben as a family of songs he’s written where each track is a close relative to the next. It’s deliberately minimalist and the songs themselves do as much of the heavy lifting as the production. “There was once a time when albums didn’t need an adjacent story or fable. When the songs were enough,” Ben says. “I’m excited to return to this.” 

WIDE OPEN LIGHT also features Ben’s recent single “Love After Love,” a song about love as “the ultimate renewable resource,” as he calls it.

The new record arrives fresh off the heels of his recent appearance in the AppleTV+ series “Extrapolations,” a fictional drama based in the near future when the effects of climate change have become embedded in society. The show includes an all-star cast featuring Meryl Streep, Kit Harington, Forest Whitaker, and many more. 

Ben was a recent guest on The Jennifer Hudson Show where he talked about the new album and appearing in “Extrapolations.” This month, Ben is also featured in Harper Bazaar as their Music Director for their May issue (read here).  Ben has also recently been featured on CBS Mornings, ABC News, SPIN, Entertainment Weekly and Variety, to name a few.

Following the release of WIDE OPEN LIGHT, Harper will have an extensive European summer tour, then select dates with The Chicks, before a string of headlining dates on tour in the US this fall. Harper’s fall tour begins in Richmond, VA on September 29th, and will feature shows in Portland, ME, Buffalo, NY, Cincinnati, OH, Milwaukee, WI and more. He will also perform at the Oceans Calling Music Festival, Sound on Sound Music & Arts Festival, and the recently announced Farm-to-Fork Festival.
