Multi - talented Ben Harper recently recorded a version of the 1994 pop hit "Fade Into You." It was a big hit for the alternative rock / dream pop group Mazzy Star, but now Mr. Harper has put his own fingerprint to it. While the original version was acoustic guitar driven, this one is a slow, mainly piano chord style. Check out the original below:
