Ben is hitting the road this summer with his new album What Matters Most with special guest: Tall Heights.
Folds’ masterful new collection, What Matters Most, isn’t so much a statement as it is an offering, an open hand reaching out to all those wounded and bewildered by a world that seems to make less and less sense every day.
The album marks Folds’ first new studio release in eight years, and it’s a bold, timely, cinematic work, one that examines the tragic and the absurd in equal measure as it reckons with hope and despair, gratitude and loss, identity, and perspective yet taken as a whole, the result is an undeniably joyful record –– an ecstatic reminder of all the beauty and promise hiding in plain sight for anyone willing to recognize their moments as they arrive.
