Singer/songwriter Ben Harper will mark Mother's Day in America in May (14) by celebrating the release of a new album he has recorded with his mum.

Ben and Ellen Harper have collaborated on new album Childhood Home, which will be released in the week leading up to the annual celebration of mums.

The 10 original tracks about home and family life were written by Ellen and her famous son.

Harper tells Rolling Stone, "My mom and I making a record together is something we have talked about doing for a very long time."
