Ben & Amanda
« on: April 02, 2007, 02:12:38 AM »
ok, so i was listening to super request tonight, and after playing a dresden dolls song, the host then went on to say that amanda palmer and ben folds are working on something together. she didn't go on to say what exactly it was, so i was left hanging.
i know that the dolls joined ben in a few concerts down here in oz last year, but i haven't heard much else on them collaborating on anything.
does anybody know what they're doing? am i the last to know?

Only because I made it up. But that doesn't mean it's not true. Having read Amanda's blog, it does seem to fit with the dates she was recording her solo album so...

Hence the words "We believe" preceeding the statement. Ben SAID he was producing an album for a female musician, the radio host said they were working together and you say it fits in with the solo album dates; it might as well be fact, methinks.

Yeah, I think it is too. Because on wikipedia (I know, I know) it said the title of her upcoming release will be "Nashville"....

EDIT: Well, I just checked wikipedia again, and now it says "Untitled". But, I swear before it said "Nashville".
My new philosophy is that a crappy tape deck somewhere plays a greatest hits collection of strange and tender moments, lost, stranded, and forgotten. I'll meet you there.

I just wanted to take credit for coming up with the idea first.

I'm a little bit vain like that. Carly Simon could have been writing about me (only she wasn't as I wasn't born then).

Well, you did come up with the idea first. Therefore, if it's right, you're the greatest genius who ever lived, and, if it's wrong, it will be gallows at dawn for you :)

There is some sort of Nashville connection as I downloaded Amanda's version of 'I Will Follow You Into The Dark' from her MySpace and when I stuck it into itunes the album came up as Nashville.

And now wikipedia has this:

Quote
Amanda has begun recording for a new solo album to be released in 2007. Ben Folds will produce and also play on the album.

No source quoted, though.

CONFIRMED.


CONFIRMED.

By Amanda Palmer herself three days ago actually on their message board.


Seee Ben. Seee.... you should post here.


Nah, we'd all shit ourselves.


It's labled Nashville because that's where she's recording, in the studio itself.

And you can see I posted there. :)

Looks like I'm the greatest genius that ever lived then!

(I always suspected this to be the case)
