Yesterday, Ben Folds announced that he’d reunited with his former bandmates Darren Jessee and Robert Sledge to record a new Ben Folds Five album.
A project had been rumored to be in the works for a while but now that Folds has tweeted a picture of the trio recording in the studio, we know the process is underway. (The last Ben Folds Five album was 1999’s The Unauthorized Biography of Reinhold Messner, although Folds has of course released a number of solo albums over the years). According to the band’s reps, the group doesn’t yet have a label on board for the album so a release date isn’t set, but on Twitter Folds said it would be a “spring release.” (Are you sure, Ben? It’s already almost February). That’s all the information we have for now, so we’ll leave you with this video of the band performing “Underground” instead:
