Ben Folds On His New Album Way to Normal, Interview on The Sound of Young America


Ben Folds has spent more than 15 years in the music business. He was kicked out of music school after breaking his hand in a fight, and spent time in lounge bands and as a contract songwriter in Nashville before The Ben Folds Five broke big in the mid-1990s. We talk about the melodies in his mind, what it's like to be unfashionable, and his new album, "Way to Normal."
