Hey friends, we're proud to announce the existence of our latest video baby, One Track Mind. The series, which will have an initial run of ten weeks--every Thursday, starting next week, Oct. 27--pairs an A.V. Club writer with a songwriter they admire for a conversation focused on one specific song. In addition, the interview subjects will provide us--and you--with an intimate performance of that song, in various awesome locations. For example, Nathan Rabin visited Ben Folds in his Nashville studio for a chat about and a performance of... I'm not telling. Tune in in two weeks to see it. Selected episodes of the series will also air on IFC over the next couple of months, which is kind of awesome, eh? Watch the video above to whet your appetite and find out some of the other songwriters we spoke to.
