Ben Folds has announced details of a landmark new album slated for digital release in the spring with a vinyl release to follow in the late summer.

The upcoming album will showcase new pop songs by the multi-platinum-selling singer/songwriter/producer recorded and arranged in collaboration with yMusic – a NYC-based sextet, along with the debut recording of Folds’ critically acclaimed “Concerto For Piano and Orchestra.” Recorded in just under two weeks in New York, Los Angeles, and Folds’ own historic RCA Studio A in Nashville, the album is marked by its forward-thinking studio craft and creative spontaneity.

“I don’t recall ever being quite so excited about an album I’m making,” Folds says. “I’ll let you decide if that’s a good thing or not. It’s just that we don’t often get to make a record that we’ve never heard before. The arrangements you will hear on this record are straight up rock – not ornamentation. The odd instrumentation – piano, cello, viola, violin, flute/piccolo/alto flute, trumpet/French horn, and clarinet/bass clarinet, with no bass and more often than not, no drums – is yielding something that I can’t wait to release. It’s a pop record, if that’s what you call what I write. “

Folds with yMusic will herald the new album with a kick off tour run starting in late April in a very special series of residencies in New York, Chicago, Boston, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Portland, ME, Charlottesville, Richmond, Durham, and Washington, DC. The multi-night stands will see Folds and yMusic as his band appearing at venues spanning intimate clubs to concert halls – complete details will be unveiled soon. Ben Folds with yMusic will also make an exclusive festival appearance at this year’s Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, set for Friday, June 12th in Manchester, Tennessee, and other possible dates together throughout the year.

Additional touring by Folds will also resume in mid-June, with additional US cities and international live dates to be announced soon. For news and regularly updated ticket information, please visit www.benfolds.com/events.

Having spent much of 2013 performing his “Concerto For Piano and Orchestra” with symphony orchestras around the world, Folds was eager to continue exploring new sonic landscapes but with the feeling and flexibility of playing with a “band.”

Folds first found international success as the leader of the Ben Folds Five. His subsequent solo career has seen the release of multiple studio albums, a pair documenting his renowned live performances, a remix collection, music for film and TV, an all a capella record, as well as numerous collaborations with artists spanning Sara Bareilles to William Shatner.

In March 2014, Folds premiered “Concerto For Piano and Orchestra” accompanied by the Nashville Symphony. Since then, he has spent much of his time touring around the globe, performing the three-movement concerto and orchestrations of his classic pop hits before sold-out crowds with some of the world’s greatest symphony orchestras.

A Nashville resident, Folds owns and operates the historic RCA Studio A. The studio is the multi-platinum artist’s creative hub, where he composes, collaborates, produces and records his genre-defying work, as well as that of other artists. Folds has earned universal respect and praise for his insight as judge on five highly rated seasons of NBC’s a capella competition series, The Sing Off. In addition, he has made cameo appearances in a variety of film and TV projects, including a role on NBC’s Community.

Was looking forward to seeing him with yMusic in PGH, but on the other hand, I haven't seen a Solo Bolo show since 2002.  They usually lend themselves to some interesting setlists.  \m/

HOW CAN I INVITE BEN TO THE WEDDING BEFORE HIS SHOW?

Many a burbian will be in Chicago that weekend for something NOT the show. AHHHHH

I've done a number of soundboard recordings at Park West. I know Ben usually records his own shows, but is there any chance/way of me getting permission?

EDIT: No matter what I'll be doing audience recordings, but I figure there's gotta be a way.
Title: Re: 2015 Tour Dates
Post by: Allison on March 02, 2015, 12:49:04 PM
That I don't know if management will let you do. Specially cause this is Ben + yMusic



Also 4th Presb Church only seats 1,000 for weddings.... and looks to be GA.

We're seriously talking about scheduling a currently not concrete plan of Brooke's rehearsal dinner so we can all go to that show.
CRAZY

Hahaha
the hand has been extended on twitter, but I don't expect anything. hahaha. We have, believe it or not, moved the rehearsal dinner to Thursday so we can all go to the Friday show.


This would never fly in other groups of friends. And it is so perfect.

WooHoo, Chicago dates!  Guess I'm going to have to go since I have the freaking city name in my handle   ;D 

Saw BFF at Park West during the TUBORM tour (May 3, 1999; yikes, I feel old typing that), will be nice seeing him there again almost exactly 16 years later.  I'm not religious at all, but Fourth Presbyterian is beautiful, has a serene little courtyard that's handy for escaping the tourist hoards on Mag Mile.

I do not understand coming back to Chicago 3 weeks later (and I have no idea where I'll be then so I can't commit to much).

I might. It seem crazy and most tour dates align with press stops but I suppose it never hurts to ask.

I just got tickets for the first two. The one in june is the same weekend as a music festival I might be going to and I saw him in January with the Louisville orchestra and I feel like all the orchestra shows are usually pretty similar.

I'm hoping he'll have different setlists for the two chicago shows and I might hear something I've never heard before.

The "solo" Chicago one is a symphony show. Anything not labeled solo is a yMusic show, but solo can either mean solo or something else like symphony.

Confirmed orchestra show.  The orchestra in this case being the Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestra.  I had a few friends in HS in CYSO, and the organization I work for shares a fundraiser with them, it's a really great program.  Will be interesting to see though if Ben censors himself given the majority of his backing band will be under 18.

Yay! This will be number 16 or so for me (I've started to lose count!) and I highly doubt I'll be able to drag any of my friends to go with me. They've all had enough Ben. Me, I can never have enough, obviously. I'd love to meet you all!

VIP packages are not worth $150. Better off getting more reasonably priced tickets and hoping you run into Ben after the show IMO.

I'm curious about this concierge-type service at the show. That seems weird to me.

I'm going to be at the KC date for those who want to do a Burbs hangout.

Uhh, what's in the VIP experience anyway?  It's real expensive.

From the VIP ticket page:

  • One (1) premium reserved seat in rows 1-15 or one (1) ticket on the General Admission Floor with early entry
  • One (1) limited edition signed black and white print of Ben’s original photography
  • One (1) autographed Ben Folds Vinyl Record
  • Dedicated on-site concert host
Really curious about the concert host thing. Is that just a waiter to bring you fancy overpriced drinks?

I am curious if it is a venue provided person or a member of the tour staff? Cause if it's venue-to-venue I could see it being tragically different between each stop.
