If you follow Ben Folds on Twitter you'd know that today he dropped the news that the band is back in the studio, recording new material for an album due out in spring. It's the first time the band has recorded material together since 1999, when they released The Unauthorized Biography of Reinhold Messner.
The news had been floating around for a while; Sarah Rodman tweeted it at a press conference for the TV show The Sing Off, where Ben Folds judged. But still, this is kind of exciting news. Beavis and Butthead are back, why not Ben Folds Five?
