Am Nachfolger zum 2006er Album 'Supersunnyspeedygraphic' arbeitet derzeit Ben Folds, ein paar der neues Songs rückt er schon auf seiner kommenden Tour heraus. Warum er nicht das ganze neue Album-Material schon jetzt live performen will, erklärt er folgendermaßen: "We've played most of the album here -- there's not a lot to unveil. We've got two or three songs that we were sort of holding onto, just so that someone would buy the record. But it's not a bad idea to play one of those new ones at Bonnaroo; that's kind of a special show, so we may do that."
Gerade große Festivals mit sehr vielen Zuschauern seien sehr gut geeignet, um neue Songs auszuprobieren, so Folds: "It's a music audience, and that's pretty impressive for the size of the audience," he explains. "The last time (at Bonnaroo in 2006) we played in front of a really large crowd and we were playing mostly stuff off an album that'd just been released and it all felt pretty good [and] pretty musical."
Schon während einiger Shows in diesem Jahr spielte Folds Songs des kommenden Albums, folgende Tracktitel sind seither bekannt:
'Kylie From Connecticut'
Bisher hat das Album keinen Titel; warum erklärt der Meister himself: "That's going to be one of the last things, I think, that's going to fall together here. I'm not really sure. I may have a couple of ideas, but we've got some really good stuff going for the artwork that I'm excited about. So I kind of want to get that in order and see if that helps me make up my mind."
