"How many years will we cram into one"

Earlier this year, Ben Folds shared some sobering words about the state of live music in 2020, but he's now widened his scope to take stock of all the awful stuff that's happened so far in typical Folds fashion.

The newly shared "2020" finds Folds asking, "how many years will we cram into one" over plaintive piano, tying political and social upheavals of the past to the present day. You can follow along with a lyric video below.

A press release notes that Folds has been at work on a new album after having an orchestral tour postponed by the pandemic. His most recent solo effort is 2008's Way to Normal.
