Listen Now: Roy Harper – Time Is Temporary
Hear “Time Is Temporary” from the forthcoming album by Roy Harper over on Mojo now!
“I THOUGHT I’D retired!” laughs Roy Harper, talking about the 13 years that have elapsed since his last album and his fresh offering, Man & Myth.
Assisted by Californian musician/producer Jonathan Wilson, the 72-year-old Harper has created seven tracks that encapsulate a number of different moods, recalling facets from his storied career that now reaches back over five decades and which has inspired artists as diverse as Led Zeppelin, Johnny Marr and Joanna Newsom.
Time Is Temporary is the sound of a man who is capable of contemplating his mortality as well as musing on coincidence, convergence and circumstance.
