Ben Folds Five Announce Release Date of New Album
Ben Folds Five fans can finally stop holding their breath, because the band is back and ready to play. According to Consequence of Sound, they will release their first album in 13 years on Sept. 18.
The Sound Of The Life Of The Mind will be the band’s fourth studio album. The band had broken up in 2000 when frontman Ben Folds decided to pursue a solo career. They performed together again in 2008 for a Myspace concert series and then recorded a few tracks for Folds’ project, The Best Imitation of Myself: A Retrospective. The band was never officially back together, however, until now.
The Sound Of The Life Of The Mind is due out Sept. 18 and features 10 new, original tracks. Be sure to check out the first single, “Erase Me,” which is currently streaming on Spin. The track list is included below.
