Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite are going to spend a couple nights in West Hollywood together in support of their upcoming new record.

Harper and Musselwhite announced they will play the Troubadour on Monday, May 7 and Tuesday, May 8. The shows are in support of their new record No Mercy In This Land, which drops March 30 via ANTI- Records.

The duo dropped the title track from the new album earlier this week that pair Harper’s lap steel guitar with Musselwhite’s harmonica in the blues jam. The duo won a GRAMMY for Best Blues Album in 2014 for Get Up! and this record promises to deliver as a follow-up. Listen to the new song below:

Harper has been playing shows with his band The Innocent Criminals the last few years since reforming the group in 2015. That outfit will make a stop at the One Love Cali Reggae Festival on February 11 in Long Beach (tickets still available). I got to cover them with the LA Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl in one of the first reviews at Pass The Aux in late 2015, one of the best shows I saw all year.
