[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Ben Lee [/lastfm]returns with a new album today, his first for Dangerbird Records, called Deeper Into Dream. While Lee was in NYC recently, the “smart-man’s” pop-rocker stopped by Last.fm Discover to play three songs from the album.

Deeper Into Dream unfolds like a dream. Lee worked on it during the previous year in his home studio, and he plays the songs for the first time acoustically and in an intimate studio setting.

On the album, “Pointless Beauty” marked the first song Ben ever plays drums on a record. The title was inspired after he saw [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Rufus Wainwright[/lastfm] play a show at The Greek Theatre in L.A. on the last tour. Ben says, “He’s so graceful and his taste is so excellent in everything. I want that, I want pointless beauty in my life!”

You can also take in two more brand new songs and Ben’s chat with us.
