Ben Folds Five recording new album

After getting back together last year to record a trio of tracks for Ben Folds’ new retrospective album, the members of Ben Fold Five are now working on their first full-length LP since 1999’s The Unauthorized Biography of Reinhold Messner.

As points out, Folds revealed the news on Twitter last night, tweeting a photo of himself with bassist Robert Sledge and drummer Darren Jessee. He wrote as a caption, “It’s happening fo sho – Day 1 in studio with Robert and Darren through March #NewBenFoldsFiveRecord.” When asked by a fan when the new music would see release, Folds responded “Spring.”

Below, you can listen to Ben Fold Five’s “House”, one of the aforementioned songs appearing on Folds’ The Best Imitation of Myself: A Retrospective.
