– Ben Kweller's "One Minute Pop Song//Season 2" will premiere on AOL's Spinnber.com web site. Kweller just released "Changing Horses," a country disc.
"One Minute Pop Song" is a self-produced, web-show that first aired in the summer of 2006. "One Minute Pop Song" returns for its second season with insight into Kweller's life, his surroundings and his music. Season Two takes place in Kweller's hometown, Greenville, Texas. It was filmed during recording session breaks from new album "Changing Horses."
"I am pleased to announce that 'One-Minute Pop Song' has hit the big time! My home-grown web series has been "picked up," as they say in the biz, by Spinner, the web's top-ranked rock music site, who will be airing each episode right here for nine Tuesdays in a row. Season Two starts off with a bang as we visit my childhood home, see where I first kissed my wife and discover what's buried in the backyard."
Kweller produced the album himself and recorded it with his band in Austin, where he now resides.
