As you go through all of the money Santa Claus brings you for Christmas (he brings money, right?), make sure you put some to the side for a very special release that will hit store shelves in the new year. Ben Folds Five have announced details for an official reissue of ‘Whatever and Ever Amen,’ set to drop on Jan. 27, 2015.
Remastered and pressed on 180-gram orange vinyl, this marks the first pressing of ’Whatever and Ever Amen’ since its original release in 1997; it will feature the original album cover.
