Writer Nick Hornby wrote the lyrics and Ben Folds provided the music for the upcoming Lonely Avenue, due September 28th from Nonesuch Records.
Their first single is “Levi Johnson Blues”, yes, named after that Levi Johnson. It’s good. And you know, if this revitalizes Folds, who’s put out a few okay-lackluster albums, since going solo, then I’m all about it.
Consider this album, which I didn’t know about until I got the press release today very very very high on my radar. The duo discuss making the album with the BBC.
