Ben Folds Loves A Cappella

If you feel music is getting too complicated these days, what with all the guitars and pianos and drum sets drowning out voices, has Ben Folds recorded an album for you! After scouring the nation’s top colleges for undiscovered talent, the bespectacled pianist has compiled a new album of university a cappella groups covering his songs (rather earnestly, we suppose). The songwriter appears proud of his new record, and said, “I’d rather this be my greatest hits record than someone collecting my masters and slapping on a photo of me leaning against a piano.” Ben Folds Presents: University A Cappella will be released on April 28.
