Ben Folds Five will release their first album in 13 years, The Sound Of The Life Of The Mind, on September 18th via ImaVeePee Records/Sony Music Entertainment. That’s the artwork above, and the 10-song tracklist is posted below.

As previously reported, the band funded the album through a grassroots crowd sourcing campaign on PledgeMusic. A portion of the funds generated by album sales, and other items ordered by fans through PledgeMusic, will be used to support Music Education and Music Therapy, a charity personally chosen by Ben Folds Five, according to a press release.

In support of the release, BFF will plays shows in the U.S., Europe, and Australia through the end of the year. Check out their updated tour schedule below.
