You're the Ultimate Pop Queen

Evan Dando, Jr.'s Ben Lee's new album Ripe will be released in September.

"We are in the process of working through the top 25 of the 80 songs I've written, in order to choose the 18 that we will record," Lee wrote last month.
Lee is one of those pop savants that has hooks and melodies spewing out of his orifices at all times. He's quite prolific so I've never felt current with him. I'll work on changing that. I respect his non-judgmental approach to collaborations. The new album will feature contributions from Mandy Moore, a guy from Good Charlotte, the members of Rooney, Tom Petty's keyboardist, and Nickel Creek's Sara Watkins.
