The latest song stories from the witty, piano-centric rock group.

Ben Folds Five put out a new album in the fall of 2012 after more than a decade hiatus. Ben Folds leads with piano and vocals in songs that tell stories. His stories capture the familiar moments we all experience--realizing someone doesn't love you back, dreaming of escaping the mundane life you find yourself in, admitting a bad mistake--and adds a catchy or haunting tune. You might remember Brick from 1997. It's nice to hear new songs from an old friend.
