White Lies for Dark Times is the ninth studio album by American singer-songwriter Ben Harper (with the Relentless7), released in May 2009 via Virgin Records.

This is the first album Ben Harper has recorded with the Texas based backing band Relentless7, after putting his long time backing band the Innocent Criminals on hiatus.

The Relentless7 is comprised of Jason Mozersky (guitars), Jesse Ingalls (bass) and Jordan Richardson (drums).

The results of this new pairing is an explosive dose of rock, Texas blues, soul grooves and acoustic ballads. This is probably the most electric recording that Harper has made up to this point in his career. Six of the eleven tracks were co-written with the band and it is evident on the album that the album works cohesively between Harper as a “solo” artist and the band, almost as an integrated unit.

The opener “Number with no Name” is an electric blues stomp with a great slide guitar, followed by a spacy rock number “Up To You Now”. “Why Must You Always Dress In Black” is another blues rock number, contrasted by “Skin Thin” which is a gospel tinged ballad.

This is one of his strongest albums and there is not one “filler” song on the album.

Check out the tracks:  Shimmer & Shine (Live)”; “Number With No Name”; “Fly One Time”; “Skin Thin”; “Shimmer & Shine”; “Lay There & Hate Me”; andUp To You Now”.

This double album 2LP record set is on black vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve, pressed in Europe.
