    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.

    Joshua Redman and Brooklyn Rider's Sun on Sand is due October 4 on Nonesuch. The album comprises eight compositions from a suite by composer Patrick Zimmerli. Each piece in the suite, which premiered at London’s Wigmore Hall in 2014, represents a different expression of light. Bassist Scott Colley and drummer Satoshi Takeishi perform as well. Sun on Sand is available to pre-order with an instant download of the album track "Between Dog and Wolf," named for a French expression for dusk.

    Portuguese fado singer Carminho's album Maria is due in the US on September 27 via Nonesuch Records. Its title is her given first name and a name in Portugal that's both traditional and a popular choice among contemporary young parents, as fado is both part of a tradition and belongs to today's world. Carminho, who wrote many of the lyrics and songs and produced the record herself, considers it a dialogue between herself and two fado singers who blazed a trail for her: Beatriz da Conceição and Teresa Siqueira (her mother). London Jazz News calls it "a beautifully realized, remarkably varied yet uniformly gorgeous album." Pre-order to download the tracks "O Menino e a Cidade" and "Estrela" now.
