Wow, another new Ben Harper project.  Ben, Joseph Arthur and Dhani Harrison have a band called Fistful Of Mercy.  I hadn't heard anything about this, and all of the sudden, this video pops up in my email box. I know that Ben and his other other band, Relentless7 have a new album, Give 'Til It's Gone, due out this fall. (And I wish Ringo Starr would release a live album from one of the shows he did with Ben and the 7 a few months back!) The song, "Fistful of Mercy," is pretty great. so I'm looking forwad to hearing this.  But I wonder, when will Ben work with The Innocent Criminals again?

'Give Till It's Gone", Ben's new album with Relentless7 isn't coming out until next year now. He mentioned it in an online chat with fans a while back on his web site. There is a video on youtube of a performance of a new song from the album. At the beginning of the song he says the new album is coming out in March. Here is a link to the video:
