American singer-songwriter Ben Folds is reuniting cult group Ben Folds FIVE to record new material.
The group, comprising of Folds, Robert Sledge and Darren Jessee, split up in 2000 but reunited for a one-off gig as part of a taping for MySpace.com show Front to Back in 2008.
The cult trio reformed again earlier this year (11) to record three tracks for Folds' new album, The Best Imitation of Myself: A Retrospective, which is due for release in October (11).
Now Folds is hoping to head back to the studio with Sledge and Jessee to record more songs as a three-piece.
He tells Spinner, "We did three things that we could do quickly for the record, and there were all these other ideas that I was bringing in that were really more radical. So I think in December we'll probably get together to do that as long as I have enough material when I come back in."
