Ben Folds Five Releasing First Album in 13 Years
Piano-dominated trio Ben Folds Five will be reuniting for their first album in 13 years, The Sound of the Life of the Mind.
The new album came about through a grassroots campaign on PledgeMusic, where artists, fans and charities work together to create albums. A portion of the funds from the album will go toward music education and music therapy, and those who’ve participated in the campaign will receive an early delivery of the album. Ben Folds Five will embark on a full North American tour this fall in support of The Sound of the Life of the Mind, and you can check out the tour dates below.
The new LP will be released worldwide through ImaVeePee Records/Sony Music Entertainment on Sept. 18.
