Hot on the heels of our look through Ben Folds’ discography, a release date has been announced for the first new Ben Folds Five album in over a decade. The Sound Of The Life Of The Mind is being released on September 18th, on ImaVeePee records, through their old label home of Sony Music.
The album was funded via a PledgeMusic campaign that reached its’ goal literally within hours. Ben Folds Five fans (like me) are a pretty cult-ish bunch. The news of a full-on reunion sent many of us into a tizzy, and the fact that there will soon be an album of new music from the trio (in what is turning out to be a jam-packed September for music lovers) is super-exciting.
If you need any more incentive to buy the album, please be aware that a portion of the proceeds from the album will be used to benefit Music Education and Music Therapy. Ben has long been an advocate for funding of music programs in schools. A worthy charity, especially if it produces more Ben Folds-type artists.
As one would expect, the trio is also taking their show on the road. Check out dates below:
