Ben Harper & Relentless7 have returned with a new video in support of their recently released studio album, White Lies for Dark Times. They have also returned with a message: It’s about taking a risk — not allowing complacency to step in as a daily ritual,” Harper explains to Spinner.com. “It’s really about stepping out of your life and stepping to it.”
As a result, what you’re about to see leads to some serious re-evaluation — why sit in front of a computer all day when you can bungee jump? Ok, so that’s probably not all too realistic/a good idea, but at the very least, the video’s collage of extreme sports, Tour de France clips, surfing, and free-running gets your blood pumping. Plus, what other music video these days features the Dalai Llama. Even if you’re not a fan of Mr. Harper, “Fly One Time” will probably prove to be entertaining.
If you are a fan, you’ll also probably be happy to know that in addition to their upcoming festival appearances (see below), Harper & Relentess7 will be playing Conan O’Brien on Friday, July 31st. So, set your TiVos!
