Ben Folds and Nick Hornby's New Album

Ben Folds has collaborated with Nick Hornby to create a brand new album. Ben arranged most of the music and sang lyrics that Nick wrote. If you are unfamiliar with Nick Hornby look no further than High Fidelity. If you didn't actually read the book, I am sure you saw the epic movie with Mr. Cusack. I picked up the album recently and each song is a story. It's pretty great, it's not often professional writers collab with artists. Turns out Nick has been a Ben Folds fan for a while. However please do not expect Nick to be speaking on the album, this isn't like the Folds produced Shatner album. But a song that is not on the album showed up on Ben's website with no other than Pomplamoose and Nick Hornby enlightening all of us. It is worth getting the album (titled Lonely Avenue) and the additional song. enjoy the video and check to see when Fold's will be in your area!!!!
