At this point, just about every piece of promotion for the Ben Folds Five reunion album The Sound Of The Life Of The Mind has reinforced Folds’s wacky-guy credibility. But their new video for the ballad “Sky High” finds Folds and friends back on their “Brick” shit, going all soft and emotive. In this one, they lurk unseen in the apartment of a kid about half Folds’s age, helping to tell a sweet little young-folks love story. Darren Jessee directs, and if VH1 still played videos, this would be going directly into rotation. Watch it below.
The Sound Of The Life Of The Mind is out now on Sony Legacy.
