Ben Folds is apparently a big Dresden Dolls fan. According to Spin.com, Folds randomly emailed the band “cofessing his love” for the duo, and now Amanda Palmer is recording her solo debut in Folds’ Nashville, TN studio. “When I told him I’d gladly squat there to make my solo record, he offered to produce it. I didn’t think twice. Working with Ben has been amazing. We collaborate perfectly.”
The record will be titled Who Killed Amanda Palmer and whether that is a coy reference to Twin Peaks remains to be seen, though it would certainly fit in with Palmer’s creepy image. Palmer is releasing the album on her own Eight Foot record label, while Dresden Dolls drummer Brian Viglione is on tour with Humanwine.
On the album, Palmer promises the “final result will be biblical.”
