Amazon reveals more details about 'House'

12/September/2011 - 11:31

Amazon UK has been updated with some press shots of the Ben Folds Retrospective box set, including the booklet that accompanies it.

By the looks of it, the booklet will include a little paragraph about each track on the CDs. The image is open at the 'House' page, enabling us to read:

The first Ben Folds Five original track in 12 years in order to have something new to tack to the end of an album of my best work. No pressure. That said, I'm really glad. There's something right about bookending this period and doing it with Robert and Darren. The song is about associating bad times with where you lived. The chorus is written in the vernacular of a typical Springer guest - "I'm not going back up in that house!". We all have dreams in old houses, basements. Houses have walls for psychological compartmentalisation. At some point, you put the past behind and shut the door no matter how thoroughly you intended to clean each room.
