Songs for Silverman tracklist, release date, and more!

26/January/2005 - 9:34 ran an article late yesterday about Ben's new album "Songs for Silverman", which, amongst other things, gave us a track list!

Bastard (aka "Young Bastard")
You To Thank
Give Judy My Notice
Sentimental Guy
Prison Food

It was recorded with Ben's touring bassist and drummer - Jared Reynolds and Lindsay Jamieson (who also played on some of the EP tracks) - in the studio in Nashville, apart from "Gracie" and "Sentimental Guy" which are Folds' solo songs supposedly recorded at his home in Adelaide.

The article also gives us a US release date of April 26th, and clears up the half-info about "Landed"'s release date - it's going out *to radio* on the 1st of Feb, with no word of an actual CD release. However, with over two-and-a-half months' gap between radio release and the album coming out, it'd be daft for there to be no single available in the mean time.

There's also a few song explanations from Folds himself thrown in for good measure, such as Landed:

"It's about a close friend of mine who's recovering from being under the influence of a crazy girlfriend," says Folds. "I had this mental image of him flying back to reality, landing at the airport and needing a ride back to the life he left behind."

You can check out the online article here, or the full-blown unedited version on the boards.

Thanks to all who posted and emailed!
