Ben Folds Five Reunites to Create New Album
“Now she’s feeling more alone than she ever has before/ she’s a brick and I’m drowning slowly”– Yep, when I was 12, we were all walking around wailing Ben Folds Five’s “Brick” with no clue about the, um, mature and possibly touchy meaning behind the song. Oopsie. As a Ben Folds fan, I’ve liked the solo albums he’s put out, but I was very excited to hear that the band is getting back together!
Folds tweeted yesterday: “It’s happening fo sho – Day 1 in studio with Robert and Darren through March” along with a photo of all them recording together.
Folds also said that we can expect an album this spring. The last album Ben Folds Five recorded was “The Unauthorized Biography of Reinhold Messner” in 1999.
That’s about all we know for now. But, to get you pumped for the upcoming release, here’s the guys performing “Battle of Who Could Care Less” back in the day.
