Sehr bald kommt das neue Ben Folds-Album. Bereits jetzt hat der Künstler höchstpersönlich den Brief zur Platte geschrieben:
’songs for silverman‘ is the recording of eleven events in the studio. they’re fairly pure and recorded pretty quickly. i think that shows through on first listen. there is overdubbing and arranging as well, but these things happened quickly, almost in a frenzy sometimes so that we could walk out of the studio with a representation… a finished recording rather than a theory. jared and lindsay and i locked ourselves in the studio each day, taking breaks for a soy chai or lens testing or even beard trimming, learning songs that i’d already demo’d, interpretting them whichever direction the wind blew that day. thus, a fairly country version of ‚give judy my notice‘ – since bucky baxter, legendary pedal steel player dropped by that day. the recording of ’songs for silverman‘ is very stark and flat, not often very compressed or hyped, unless i got a sudden hankerin‘ for some tasty EQ and some aural excitement.
