Call It What It Is, the long-awaited album that reunites Ben Harper with The Innocent Criminals, is the first recorded album by the band in nine years. The 11 track album is an incisive, bold, poetic statement that could only come from these long-time musical partners, one of popular music's most essential, cohesive and dynamic ensembles.
The standout title track showcases Harper's unmatched ability to blend the personal and political. The genre-spanning collection contains many highlights including the sun-kissed groove of "Shine" and the album's swaggering lead track "When Sex Was in Dirty."
Call It What It Is is kinetic and emotional, flowing with spark, depth, passion and growth that Ben Harper core fans love the world over.
Tracing their roots back to 1993, Ben Harper & the Innocent Criminals were at the heart of most of Harper's projects until the band went on hiatus in 2008. The band toured internationally and released a string of groundbreaking albums, including Fight for Your Mind, The Will to Live, Burn to Shine and the Grammy-nominated Lifeline in 2007. The Innocent Criminals also backed Harper and The Blind Boys of Alabama on the double-Grammy-winning There Will Be a Light in 2005.
