BEN'S ROCKIN' COMEBACK!
BEN FOLDS has confirmed details of his debut solo single and album.

Folds, who disbanded Ben Folds Five last year, releases his debut solo single, 'Rockin' The Suburbs', on September 17 via Sony.

The video for the track has been directed by eccentric comedian Weird Al Yankovic, who made his name parodying the hit songs of bands including Nirvana, Coolio and Michael Jackson.

The video is said to be an observation of suburban middle class angst.

The single is the first track to be taken from the album of the same name, which follows on September 24.
