Roy Harper – Time Is Temporary (2013)

Scroll down to content

“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. Harper says the track is “based on a thought… that maybe I will pass you in the street, or in a train, or a restaurant, and we’ll look at each other and have the same sort of feelings, but never take it any further, never take the next step that both of us seemed to want to, so we’ll never know what might have been.” [Source]
