In July 2008, there was a suspicious leak of new Ben Folds Five material
, two months in advance of the (then) forthcoming album, Way to Normal
. One month later, Ben Folds confessed
that he and his touring band made the 6 fake songs in 8 hours
(plus three tunes actually from the album), and he compared the fake tracks to the real album. Two years later, Wiley tweeted that he sacked his manager
, and in a form of retaliation, shared 11 seemingly random collections of tracks
in various forms of completion. [more inside]
Such Great Heights
performed by Ben Folds
with a piano and unusual percussions.
Probably everyone already knows the original
and the Iron&Wine
, but have you ever listened the live cover by the Dresden Dolls
William Shatner covers 'Common People' by Pulp,
with the help of Ben Folds and Joe Jackson. Album of further genius forthcoming. [thanks Suw!
