Folds Releases Choir Covers Album
American singer-songwriter Ben Folds is releasing an album of his tracks performed by U.S. university choirs.
Folds came up with the idea after spotting choirs' performances of his hits on video-sharing website YouTube.com.
So he travelled the country to pick the best renditions and has compiled them on a new disc.
Folds reveals, "I'm a songwriter first, and yet I've never really been covered. I figure they're going to be covered by somebody important one day. So of course I was thrilled. I got to hear the songs actually take flight. These are the songs doing what they're supposed to do."
