Ben Folds Five hit up The Colbert Report last night to promote their Top 10 album The Sound Of The Life Of The Mind, and they ended up talking about the jokey-but-not-funny (their words, not ours!) origin of the band’s name, the biggest changes (cell phones, Twitter) since they put out their last album, in 1999, and where they pulled their new LP’s title from. Next the trio performed their rockin’ piano jam “Do It Anyway.” Catch the interview above and the performance below.
