Pop geeks the world over rejoiced when Ben Folds announced he was reuniting with Robert Sledge and Darren Jessee and recording a new album as Ben Folds Five.
After three new tracks from the band appeared on Ben’s 2011 career retrospective Best Imitation of Myself, the fellas hunkered down in the studio and the first fruits of their labor have surfaced (albeit still in demo form…I think…) as “Do It Anyway.”
Ben premiered the track earlier this morning on his Facebook page, and what can I say? It’s nice to have the Five back, and I feel as though my love for the song will not abate even after I get the SqueeeeeeeeeeeBENFOLDSFIVEAREBACK!!! out of my system. Ben seems to be playing and singing with a renewed fervor, and I’m ALL for that!!
Look for the as yet untitled BFF album to (hopefully) arrive in stores later this year.
