Haley Reinhart’s latest video with Postmodern Jukebox made it’s debut last night on the new PMJ website! Accompanied by Puddles Pity Party, their cover of “Mad World” was released last month on Postmodern Jukebox’s new album “Top Hat on Fleek”, which you can buy on iTunes here.
PMJ mastermind Scott Bradlee had this to say about the pairing of Puddles and Haley:
“This remake came together quite quickly; Puddles stopped by unannounced, in typical Puddles fashion (he also surprised us at the Riviera Theatre in Chicago just recently!), so I decided to give Haley a call to see if she was around to stop by, perhaps while wearing a fun hat. This arrangement was inspired by the tradition of vaudeville variety acts; the idea of putting a heavily contrasted duo onstage together has been around for ages and still lives on today. In this case, she’s a bubbly, extroverted performer, and he’s… a 7 foot tall sad clown. The contrast here couldn’t be any clearer, as Haley tries her best to shake Puddles out of his sad sack mood and embrace the existential whimsy of it all. She may have even taught him a few new dance steps in the process.”
