Jason Schwartzman, Shaun White Star in Promo for New Ben Kweller Album (Video)

 

A bearded Jason Schwartzman stars in "Poolside Chattin'," a DIY video to promote singer-songwriter Ben Kweller's forthcoming album, Go Fly A Kite.

Filmed in an undisclosed California backyard, the actor and musician interviews Kweller, who appears as Olympic gold medalist Shaun White intermittently throughout the clip (the two do bear a slight resemblance to each other).

A spacey White (as Kweller) describes one song on Kite as, "translucent sounds echoing from the guitar, as I like to think of it. I mean, I see colors." He later claims to have an out-of-body experience during the chat. 

Kweller's Kite, due out Feb. 7, is his fifth studio release and the first on his own label, The Noise Company, and since parting ways with ATO Records in 2011.
