Reunited cult rockers Ben Folds Five are set to release their first album in 13 years this autumn (12).
Singer/songwriter Ben Folds thrilled fans in January (12) by confirming he was heading back into the studio with Robert Sledge and Darren Jessee to work on new material, and now The Sound of the Life of the Mind has been given an official retail date.
The project, the trio's first since The Unauthorized Biography of Reinhold Messner in 1999, will hit stores on 18 September (12) and part of the album's proceeds will be donated to Music Education and Music Therapy, a charitable organisation personally chosen by the band.
Ben Folds Five, which split in 2000, will launch a new world tour to support The Sound of the Life of the Mind on 13 September (12).
