Want a new Ben Kweller record? How about a fall tour in small venues? You got it.

Ben is back with a new US tour in the fall and an album to be released in early 2009, entitled Changing Horses. The tour is slated for small, intimate club settings for fans to experience the new songs for the first time, and to get exclusive merchandise.

On his Myspace, Ben gives us a good idea of what to expect when said horses change:

""It's an album i've wanted to make for years just never got around to it. I grew up in a small east-Texas town called Greenville where my whole childhood was spent playing in creeks, bass fishing, shooting BB guns, thinking about girls and listening to Garth. After the Beatles and before Nirvana - country music was the soundtrack to my life. It's definitely shaped who I am as an artist. My albums which are pretty diverse usually have one or two cuts on them that are rootsy-americana-folkie-whatever ya wanna call it. This album just focuses in on that one side of me, and I love that cuz it's got this really consistant vibe but the stories are all over the place. I think my fans will really feel this album. Especially the ones who love my songs "Lizzy", "In Other Words", "Family Tree", "Living Life" - those type sounds."

Look out for the album, tentatively dropping in January. And don't forget to check out our footage of Ben at Southpaw. -joe puglisi
