In 2010, Ben Harper started a band called [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Fistful of Mercy [/lastfm]with [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Dhani Harrison [/lastfm] ([lastfm link_type="artist_info"]George Harrison[/lastfm] from the [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Beatles[/lastfm]‘ son) and popular singer-songwriter, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Joseph Arthur[/lastfm].

The folksy, guitar-driven three-piece musical elite played Coachella 2011, but not until it was announced that Harper would be releasing his highly-anticipated forthcoming full-length Give Till It’s Gone with the first single to be “Rock ‘n Roll Is Free.”
