    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.

    In These Times, the new album by percussionist, producer, and composer Makaya McCraven, is due September 23. It has been in process since 2015 and is the album McCraven’s been trying to make since he started making records, an appropriately career-defining body of work. The eleven-song suite was created over seven-plus years, as McCraven strived to fuse odd-meter compositions from his working songbook with orchestral, large-ensemble arrangements and the edit-heavy “organic beat music” he’s honed over the years. With contributions from over a dozen musicians and creative partners from his tight-knit circle of collaborators—including Jeff Parker, Junius Paul, Brandee Younger, Joel Ross, and Marquis Hill—In These Times highlights McCraven’s unique gift for collapsing space, destroying borders, and blending past, present, and future into poly-textural arrangements of post-genre, jazz-rooted 21st-century folk music.
