Jonathan Coulton is on a major roll of late… his new album Artificial Heart just hit #1 on the BIllboard Heatseeker Chart, meanwhile folks like Suzanne Vega, John Roderick of the Long Winters, Sara Quin of Tegan and Sara and John Flansburgh of They Might Be Giants turned out to collaborate with Coulton on the record. Artificial Heart is his first full-length offering of new material since his lauded “Thing a Week” series from 2006 where he produced a new musical work each week for a year. Coulton’s latest single is the ultra catchy “Sticking It to Myself”, which features Phil Hernandez from the Elegant Too. Flansburgh, who produced the whole album, returns to film and direct this new video.
