New Ben Folds and Nick Hornby album
2010-08-13 by Dr Dave De Sylvia STAFF | 9 Comments

Ben Folds and best-selling author Nick Hornby will release their first album together, entitled Lonely Avenue, on September 24.

Hornby told Paste: “I kind of ran the gamut between being as simple as I’ve ever been, and sometimes having to go [Russian composer Dmitri] Shostakovich on some of them. At this stage in my career, I want to collaborate with all the talented people I can find, and I’ve always been a big fan of Ben Folds’ music. It’s been a real privilege to watch and listen to Ben at work, and I’ve learned a lot about how proper songwriters like Ben think.”

Hornby is a well-known music buff. His 1995 novel, High Fidelity, detailed the travails of a record store clerk and was subsequently made into a 2000 movie starring John Cusack and a 2006 musical.

The first single from the album, 'Picture Window,' is free to download on Ben Folds' website.

Yeah couldn't find the link but watched the video under the recent videos heading and it sampled a few songs, sounds like it's going to be a great record.
