Ben Harper will release a career-spanning retrospective album, titled By My Side, on October 16 via Virgin/EMI. The collection features 12 tracks hand-selected by Harper, including “Forever,” “Diamonds On The Inside,” and “Waiting On An Angel,” in addition to a new ballad, “Crazy Amazing.” Also included is the rare studio version of “Not Fire Not Ice,” which was previously unreleased in the US.

Harper will headline his first-ever solo acoustic tour this fall, beginning September 26 in Ann Arbor, MI and continuing to several other major cities across North America before heading to New Zealand and Australia.

The solo acoustic star actually started on September 4th in Vienna, VA. I was there and it was magical. Spectacular venue too.
