Ben Folds University A Capella

News from Ben Folds, the man whose early works I still count amongst my favorite music of all time, but whose more recent work has tended to disappoint: On 28 April he is set to release an album full of recordings of his songs performed by university a capella groups from all over the United States. You can already listen to the album in its entirety on iLike and the few songs I just sampled sound pretty good. Not amazing, but many of them are quite nicely arranged and adapted to the format.

Update: You can check out the making-off documentary on Ben’s myspace page
