Listen to Ben Folds Five’s “Draw a Crowd”:
Ben Folds Five have reunited to deliver their first new album in 13 years, and all that time off hasn’t detracted a bit from quirky geek appeal of the band’s signature piano-driven alt-rock. On “Draw a Crowd,” the group’s cheeky sense of humor rides strong, with Folds singing, “If you’re feeling small and you can’t draw a crowd/ Draw dicks on a wall,” with grinning confidence. Though they’re getting older, their attitude from their early days still shines through.
“Draw a Crowd” is on Ben Folds Five’s upcoming album, The Sound of the Life of the Mind, out September 18th. It’ll be the band’s first album of new music since 1999.
