 Ben Harper announces career retrospective: By My Side

Ben Harper has handpicked 12 choice ballads from his twenty year career to be part of a new retrospective entitled By My Side. Due out October 16th via Virgin/EMI, the album consists of favorites like “Forever”, “Diamonds On The Inside”, and of course the titular track. In addition, a studio version of “Not Fire Not Ice” previously unreleased in the U.S. and brand new track “Crazy Amazing” will be included.

In support of the release, Harper will head out on his first ever solo headlining acoustic tour. Something fans have been clamoring for since his appearance at the inaugural Bonnaroo festival, the North American leg of the “An Acoustic Evening with Ben Harper” tour will kick off September 26th in Ann Arbor followed by shows in New Zealand and Australia come November.

His complete tour itinerary is beneath the By My Side tracklist. We also embedded a clip of Harper performing “Not Fire Not Ice” acoustically at an August 2011 show in Vancouver (don’t worry, those jerks chattering at the beginning get shushed before long).

By My Side Tracklist:
01. Forever
02. By My Side
03. Gold To Me
04. Diamonds On The Inside
05. In The Colors
06. Beloved One
07. Not Fire Not Ice
08. Morning Yearning
09. Feel Love
10. Happy Everafter In Your Eyes

Not to be a pissy lil cunt but I was clamoring for a Ben solo tour long before Bonnnaroo was a glimmer in the eye of Superfly.
