Way to Normal

Yay, Ben Folds’ latest solo album “Way to Normal” is soon to hit the shelves with the release date set for 30 Sept.

The first single will apparently be “Hiroshima (B-B-B-Benny Hit His Head)”, a song about him falling off the stage at a concert in Japan and getting a concussion (the reason he apparently considered naming the album “Blood on the Keyboard”, in reference to this fine work). The video to the single is already available and you can watch it below:

I saw the man twice already this year, once at a gig of his in Bochum and once at the Rheinkultur festival in Bonn, and so already got a sneak peek at some of the new songs. Hiroshima is probably not the song I would have picked as the first single because it seemed to me there were much stronger songs in the new batch. But then again, sometimes it takes me a long time to truely appreciate Ben Folds songs…



  1. Probably you are right, so far Hiroshima doesn’t do the trick for me but I have heard it only twic though…. there is hope.
