Instead of rockin’ the suburbs, Ben Folds is hitting the road for a seven-date mini-tour of US universities. Folds has stepped back into the spotlight over the past year with his work on William Shatner’s Has Been album, as well as releasing his own Super D EPs. Could there be a new Ben Folds record in 2005? According to Rolling Stone, he recorded and produced his new album in Nashville, which will include a tribute to Elliot Smith. Song titles from the upcoming release include “Late”, “Give Judy My Notice”, “Time”, and “Gracie”. No release date is available yet.
