June 16 is almost here! This Tuesday, the first of four brand new originals songs will be released digitally (available at iTunes and… you know, all the usual places). The name of the song is “Craigslist.”
There will be a music video for “Craigslist” as well, also released on Tuesday. It was shot by my friend Liam Lynch (who directed “Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny” and “Sarah Silverman: Jesus is Magic” and is also responsible for those wonderful Lynchland podcasts). It’s a live-action video – my first since “White & Nerdy.” But lower your expectations – “White & Nerdy” had a huge budget, and “Craigslist” had a miniscule one. We shot it in Liam’s garage. I’m not even kidding. As it turns out, though, the “low budget” vibe happens to dovetail well with the concept of the video, so don’t worry, it all works out fine.
If you just can’t wait till the 16th to see this thing, AOL will be doing a world premiere of the “Craigslist” video tomorrow. (Unless they change their minds at the last minute and pull the plug on it like they did with “White & Nerdy.”) So check with AOL for all the details on the sneak peek!
BTW, also on Tuesday the 16th I’ll be doing a live online chat via Twitter and Ustream. I’ll be answering your questions from 5PM to 6PM Pacific time (8PM to 9PM Eastern). Details to come… but in the meantime, make sure you’re following me!
Oh, and in case you haven’t seen it yet, here’s the promo clip for AlsBrain.com.
Hope you like the new song & video!
