ben folds five 2012 Check Out: Ben Folds Five   Do It Anyway

As previously reported, the reunited Ben Folds Five are at work on a new album, their first in over a decade. Early Saturday morning, Folds posted a new, unmastered track on his Facebook. “Do It Anyway” features the kind of driving instrumentation that soundtracks old-timey barroom brawls and a bass line that could make a guitarist jealous. Listen to it below.

Folds’ Facebook post also discussed how BFF is taking a grassroots approach to promoting the record. Currently unsigned, the band is asking fans to take on roles as Vice President of Promotion by using social media to spread any news he tweets or facebooks (social media as verbs). All ‘VPs’ will be credited in the LP’s vinyl art.

Nice! The piano sound and playing remind me of Turnstile era Billy Joel. Very cool to hear this.

This album is going to suck but I’m glad it’s coming out!

It’s pretty good, lyrics are a little sloppy maybe.
