Imbued with tones of loneliness and anxiety, ‘Don’t Let Me Disappear’ sees Harper accompanied by a lush string section to make for a dirgey ballad of tear-jerking proportions. Harper discussed the new tune in a statement today, saying “‘Don’t Let Me Disappear’ is about the fine line between loneliness, isolation and invisibility, to where you can’t seem to find a way not to be hiding in plain sight.”
The new single is also paired with a video directed by Kirstin Sudeikis and Gabriel Judet-Weinshel, which you can watch below. Harper visited Australia last year to play a headline set at Byron Bay Bluesfest. Recently, he helped produce and co-write soul legend Mavis Staples’ twelfth full-length album We Get By.
