Once both romantically and creatively involved, it's been over a decade since director Paul Thomas Anderson and singer/songwriter Fiona Apple have teamed up. Having paired on four videos in the '90s — "Across The Universe," "Fast As You Can," "Limp," "Paper Bag" — the duo still remained friends as their lives has moved on, and now they've reteamed for a brand new, pretty excellent video.

It's already been revealed that the soundtrack for Judd Apatow's "This is 40" -- his sort-of-sequel to "Knocked Up" -- will feature another choice selections of cuts, including songs by Yoko Ono, Paul McCartney, Avett Brothers, Loudon Wainwright and more. But even more appealing is the fact that there are four artists who contributed new songs to the film's soundtrack, including Fiona Apple, Norah Jones, Graham Parker (who cameos in the film), and Lindsey Buckingham; all produced by the film's composer Jon Brion (Wilco and Ryan Adams also contribute new/live versions of previously known songs). It's a bit of a Dad-rock mix, but hell, it fits the material, and these kind of song selections served the tone for "Knocked Up" and Apatow's previous film "Funny People" extremely well.
