It has been 13 years in the making but Ben Folds Five has gotten back together and birthed into the world a new album called ‘The Sound of the Life of the Mind’. From the bits and pieces I have heard of the new effort, it is BF5 goodness to the core. The first release from the album is ‘Do It Anyway’ a Ben Foldsesque song if I have ever heard one. It is musical, it is powerful and it is fun. To equal the fun and playful nature of the song they had to create a video that was its equal.
Boy, did they….
BF5 joined forces with Nerdist Industries and The Jim Henson Company to breathe life into this creation as well as some old, familiar friends; THE FRAGGLES!!! Along with the adorable Muppets from days gone by, they solicited the help of the very funny Rob Corddry and the talented (and very stunning) Anna Kendrick… oh yeah and the Nerdist himself Chris Hardwick. Your face holes will be very pleased…. Very pleased indeed.
As an added bonus, here is a little ‘making of’ video for you all. Enjoy!!!
