Shatner-collaborating, sailor-mouthed goofball Ben Folds has a new album hitting shelves on Sept. 16. Way To Normal, the singer’s first new studio LP since 2005’s Songs For Silverman, is produced by Dennis Herring (Counting Crows, Modest Mouse, Elvis Costello) and will be released on Epic Records.

Even though Folds has played some high-profile shows over the past couple years backed by a full symphony orchestra (he’s scheduled to perform with the Nashville Symphony on Sept. 7 to open its 2008-09 Pops season) the new record is still unabashedly rock.
