NASHVILLE (AP) — Ben Folds is moving out of the studio on Nashville’s Music Row that he’s rented for the past 12 years.

The building was sold, and Folds led an online campaign to make sure the building would not be demolished to make way for new development.

Folds writes on his Facebook page the new owner raised his rent 124 percent, so he will move out when his lease runs out in November.

Folds says he will try to make as much of his new album in his current space before he has to leave.

Folds says he will continue to raise public awareness of “the grand history of Music Row that is threatened by hasty development.”
