So it turns out that Ben Folds, one of my favorite musicians (and the person responsible for me meeting my wife, Allison, over thirteen years ago), is working on a new album. It’s entitled “Lonely Avenue,” and all the lyrics are by Nick Hornby. This is great news, as the best track on William Shatner’s Ben Folds-produced album, Has Been, was arguably the Nick Hornby-penned “That’s Me Trying.”
Anyway, new Ben Folds album? Awesome. A collaboration with Nick Hornby? Even awesomer.
But the fact that one of my latest musical obsessions is featured on one of the tracks? Namely, Pomplamoose? That is the AWESOMEST!
Check it out, and see for yourself.
