Here's hoping for a smattering of UK dates too...
Maybe the new album will be released around then too?

He was talking April for release date. He does tend to like that April slot (or September)

So its pretty much confirmed that Ben Folds Five is not a constant thing, correct? I'm wondering if the reunion record was "one and done".

Also, this new album.. is this going to be a traditional Ben Folds solo album, or is this the piano concerto?

BF5 is not a constant thing, but they're open to working together again when it feels like they have something to say as a band. So unless that never happens again, it's not one and done - but it's not something we should be marking our calendars by.

From what I'm told, the new album is akin to "Way to Normal" in that it's at least partially or as a whole comprised of songs inspired by various "Rock this Bitch" jams over the years - hence Ben assembling the Justice League once again.

As far as I know, the concerto is either being released as it's own album or as part of the YMusic deal. Don't honestly know much about those plans as that's stayed under my radar.

Your last sentence is correct it's concerto + yMusic concerto inspired songs on the album we're getting this year. Per the album announcement Facebook post of Ben's.
