Give Till It’s Gone is the tenth studio album by Ben Harper. The album was released in Italy on May 10, 2011 and worldwide on May 17, 2011 by Virgin Records. It is Harper’s first solo album since Both Sides Of The Gun, released in 2006.
The album was preceded by the single “Rock N’ Roll Is Free”, released as a free download on March 22, 2011. In Italy, the first single from the album was “Don’t Give Up on Me Now”, released on April 1, 2011.
In the album, Ben Harper collaborates with the ex-Beatle Ringo Starr, who co-wrote and played the drums in the tracks “Spilling Faith” and “Get There from Here”. Another song from the album, “Pray That Our Love Sees the Dawn”, features American singer-songwriter Jackson Browne
According to an issued press release, the end result seeks to examine “the disparity between the man [Harper] is today and the man he endeavours to become… While its songs are highly personal, Give Till It’s Gone illuminates the universal struggle to find meaning and fully engage with life and one another.”
