Claire's 9th
« on: March 25, 2010, 12:36:59 PM »
Hey guys,

So I was reading two articles today about Ben, and according to them, a new song called Claire's 9th from the Foldsby album has leaked onto the internet along with Picture Window and Levi Johnston's Blues. I am assuming that they are talking about the demo of Picture Window Ben posted, and the live version of Levi's Blues, but what about Claire's 9th? Anyone know where I can find this song?

You can find the article here: http://www.billboard.com/news/ben-folds-talks-chatroulette-nick-hornby-1004078406.story?tag=hpfeed

Much obliged!
I want to live in Effington.

"Among the songs set for release are the Internet-leaked "Levi Johnston's Blues," the upbeat "Picture Window" and the powerful "Claire's 9th." "
I think that internet-leaked is only meant to apply to Levi Johnston's Blues, because he has an adjective before each song.

"The record coming out in September is the important part, just to get it out there.""

When Ben said it was being released in the spring he clearly meant the southern spring!  Promotional tour here to co-incide please, Ben.
It's easy to be easy and free when it doesn't mean anything...

- "A number of song titles have leaked, along with the songs themselves: “Levi Johnston's Blues,” “Picture Window” and “Claire's 9th” have all hit the web so far. "

Dunno if its been posted but the album list looks to be

Picture Window
Levi Johnston's Blues
Your Dogs
Practical Amanda
Doc Pomus
Claire's 9th
Working Day
Saskia Hamilton
Belinda
From Above
Password

Anyway whats the prize for finding the leaked "Claires 9th"? lol

Again, I'm going to say that I don't think Claire's 9th has leaked. A rumor has spread because of this poorly worded sentence:

"Among the songs set for release are the Internet-leaked "Levi Johnston's Blues," the upbeat "Picture Window" and the powerful "Claire's 9th." "

There is an adjective before each song title. This is a parallel sentence structure and each adjective only describes the song right after it. Upbeat applies only to picture window. Powerful applies only to Claire's 9th. And internet-leaked applies ONLY to Levi Johnston's Blues. It is the only one that had a demo.

If Claire's 9th had leaked, we would know.

Both "Levi" and "Picture" have had studio demos streamed online, the latter of which was featured on an Aussie magazine's website. "Levi" was on the Huffinton Post's site. Both were pretty low quality, but you got the idea. Can't wait to hear more!

AliKat is right. Grammatically, there's no way that sentence suggests that Claire's 9th has leaked.

as ali said - if it had leaked SOMEONE Of us would have it.

I don't think it's even been played live has it? (not keeping up really right now. too much work - and don't want to be tempted. ONE WEEK TIL I CAN LISTEN AGAIN)

Thus far, only Belinda, Levi's, and Picture Window have been played stateside. Someone in Australia posted a setlist a little while back with a track called "Your Dogs" in it, but most of us assumed it was just "Dog" and the listener wasn't familiar with the tune. It may have in fact been the first live performance of a new tune we've yet to get stateside. We've yet to hear "Clair's Ninth."

Well "Your Dogs" is a song that should be on the album, so looks like it was probably played in australia perhaps.
