Hey,

just a heads up: Ben Folds' latest record is being released today. It's called Lonely Avenue.

Here's the twit: The lyrics to all songs were written by English novelist Nick Hornby. Ben Folds put music to his words.

Pretty interesting experiment. From listening to it I must admit that I'm not that fond of the lyrical side of things. The music is great as always but some of the lyrics are lacking. There are some very cool lines in there though, like:

Hope is a bastard
Hope is a liar, a cheat and a tease
Hope comes near you
Kick his backside
Got no place in days like this

one cannot say, "ben Folds" and "dropped" in the same sentence...

they are contraindicating...

OY!

Awesome. I love his work, this sounds like a cool concept. Kind of like the elton and bernie collaboration.

Does he feel the need to inject stupid profanity, for no reason, again?

Great writer but, sorry---that's growing alittle old with me.
