New video from Ben Folds & Nick Hornby - "Things You Think"

In the process of promoting their highly anticipated album Lonely Avenue, Ben Folds and Nick Hornby took a little time to record and film a brand new song not featured on the album with the duo Pomplamoose who has become famous for the concept of VideoSong.

The process involves filming every part of the recording process and shining a little light on the multi-tracking which goes into making music. At the end, they're left with a very sharp, cool looking video.

The song they recorded is titled "Things You Think," which, like the album, features lyrics written by Nick Hornby. The album only features Folds singing, but Hornby contributed a spoken word part on this song, which is excellent. Check out the video below and the song has also been made available on iTunes.

Lonely Avenue will be released on Sept. 28 via Nonesuch Records. Check out more info on the album here.
