Produced by Folds with yMusic’s Rob Moose and CJ Camerieri, the album flourishes in the overlap between the pop and classical worlds, pairing eight brand new pop songs written, arranged, and recorded by Folds & yMusic with the eagerly awaited debut recording of Folds’ critically acclaimed “Concerto For Piano and Orchestra.” Songs like “Long Way To Go” and the ebullient title track are marked by forward-thinking studio craft and creative spontaneity, combining Folds’ vaunted knack for hook and harmony with yMusic’s talent for exciting interpretation.
