Ben Folds has teamed up with the supremely talented yMusic ensemble for his upcoming album, So There, which will be out September 11. Folds described the album to NPR as having a “3-movement piano and orchestra concerto,” which sounds impressive. The new song, “Capable of Anything,” has that typical Folds penchant for pop laced with wry wit and aching earnestness. But the intricate classical instrumentation is undeniably new territory for the 48-year-old.

Stream “Capable of Anything” below, via NPR:
