Sony Music has this afternoon confirmed the forthcoming release of 'The Sound Of The Life Of The Mind' - the first new Ben Folds Five album in 13 years.
After reuniting early last year, the trio has, with the help of their global fandom via Pledge Music, created the new LP and re-emerged as a freshly reunited force, announcing live dates across the US including the Bonnaroo Festival, as well as a visit to Australia for the Harvest Festival in November. The band is also embarking on a major US tour from September, kicking off at Central Park in New York on September 14.
A portion of funds raised through sales of the album will go to Music Education and Music Therapy.
'The Sound Of The Life Of The Mind' will be released in Australia on Friday September 21.
