Details of Ben Folds' new collection of a capella songs performed by University groups dubbed Ben Folds Presents: University A Cappella! have been released. The awesome/hilarious album art can be seen to the right. The Spartones from UNCG which we speculated about earlier will open the album with their version of "Not the Same." It is followed by "Jesusland" performed by the UNC female group Loreleis. It is nice to see Folds giving the opening tracks to his home state's groups. Check out the rest of the track list below.
You can download The Spartones groovy version of "Not the Same" now from Stereogum.
Ben Folds Presents: University A Cappella! will be released on April 28 via Epic Records.
