Australian indie rock hero Ben Lee is gearing up for the release of his fourth album, Hey You, Yes You. F2 Music, Cornerstone's very own new label, has inked a deal with the prolific young singer/songwriter and will be dropping Hey You, Yes You on August 12. Produced by the one and only Dan The Automator (Gorillaz, Handsome Boy Modeling School), the album is full of surprises, as should be expected from sample-happy knob-twister. Ben will be on tour in support of Hey You, Yes You with Fountains Of Wayne beginning July 5 in Nashville, TN. The tour will hit most major North American cities before wrapping up at the House Of Blues in Anaheim, CA. Ben will then head home to his native Australia (though he's been living in NYC for the past few years) for an eight-date headlining tour.
Though it's been nearly four years since his last release (Breathing Tornadoes), Ben's been keeping busy. He contributed two original songs to Evan Dando's new solo album, Baby I'm Bored ("Hard Drive" and "All My Life"). He's also recently collaborated with Ben Folds and Ben Kweller on the much talked about project, The Bens.
