Ben Folds is one of the major music influencers of our generation. His body of genre-bending music includes a string of classic albums with Ben Folds Five and a glorious mix of collaborations and special projects. He returns with What Matters Most, his first studio album in eight years. Released in June on New West Records, What Matters Most is a bold, timely, cinematic work. “More than anything I wanted to make an album that was generous, that was useful "says Ben Folds. "This perhaps more than any record I’ve made is a true album ”Ben Folds will combine his new album with his own choice of songs from his whole career. He's chosen guitarist and singer Lau Noah to open these shows-she's a thrilling new voice from Catalonia via New York.

Ben Folds will be joined by a full band, made up of musicians who feature on the new album and who’ve been performing with him across the US, see the likes of guitarist Tim Harrington and cellist Paul Wright from Tall Heights, as well as bass player Mandy Clarke!
