    Video: Ben Folds & Nick Hornby Join Pomplamoose for VideoSong "Things You Think"

    Ben Folds and Nick Hornby have taken the collaborative spirit behind their forthcoming album, Lonely Avenue, and joined up with another duo, Jack Conte and Nataly Dawn, also known as Pomplamoose.

    Pomplamoose, the singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalists behind the smash series of YouTube VideoSongs have just posted their latest video, "Things You Think," featuring music by Folds and lyrics by Hornby, as do all the songs on Lonely Avenue. And as with all the Pomplamoose VideoSongs, what you see is what you hear (no lip-syncing for instruments or voice), and if you hear it, at some point you see it (no hidden sounds). This time around, Hornby contributes both lyrics and a rare vocal track. Read what Folds has to say about the writing and recording process and see some behind-the-scenes photos at benfolds.com.

    "Things You Think" is now available on iTunes and is also included as an exclusive bonus track on the iTunes deluxe version of Lonely Avenue. The album, available for pre-order there and in the Nonesuch Store with a limited-edition printed Folds/Hornby manuscript of the song "Picture Window," is out on Nonesuch on September 28.
