Ben Folds is going release his latest album on September 11th. The new album is called ‘So There’ The album began with a commission from the Nashville Ballet and the Nashville and Minnesota Symphony Orchestra to create an original musical score for a new ballet. The end result is a 21 minute Concerto for Piano and Orchestra in 3 movements. Next came his collaboration with yMusic, a critically acclaimed classical sextet from New York who helped Ben Folds bridge his pop/chamber rock songs with the concerto. The ensemble will also be joining Ben Folds when he makes his Royal Opera House debut on August 12th, for a live show.
