They also play So There later in the show.

At the very end, Ben says he and yMusic are going back into the studio in New York soon.

back in the studio?! for what I wonder. Some fancy b-sides perhaps?

Interestingly, he says something to the extent that details haven't been finalized yet, so he couldn't elaborate...presumably if it were for B-Sides, it would have been part of their So There agreement.

Yeah, who knows.  Maybe it's more of a yMusic vehicle and Ben will just be a featured piano player or something.

Some future plans revealed slightly more clearly in this feature.

""Among Folds’ innumerable other future plans are a return to the aforementioned Dublin sessions as well as starting work on a large composition for university orchestras and wind ensembles, “something written for them that is naughty as hell. I want them to feel like they’re breaking the law.” What’s more, Folds & yMusic have already begun plotting out their next collaborative outing, this time with an ear towards delving further into the group’s myriad rhythmic and percussive possibilities.

“They’re a pretty special group,” Folds says, “and I wouldn’t have learned all their various superpowers without playing with them.

“This record is just the tip of the iceberg,” he adds. “We haven’t come close.”"
