Molly Jenson Releases Debut Album; Visits With "Bono"


Six months ago we picked this day, March 3rd, as the release date for the debut album by our artist Molly Jenson. Of course we had no idea that a little band from Ireland named U2 would choose the same day as well.

Subsequently, some of Molly's biggest fans joined a campaign called Make Molly #1 to topple the Irish rockers from their likely lofty perch at the top of the pop charts. The day is now upon us and according to Amazon, U2 is at the top of the heap and Molly's at #1,106, but hey, the week isn't over yet.

We decided to have a little fun with the whole thing with a video we shot recently with Molly and "Bono." Funny or Die has just posted it here. I hope you enjoy it as we much as we did shooting it.

By the way, this Bono is actually, Pavel Sfera. He's a great guy and you should definitely hire him for your next party. One sneaky guy recently hired him to go to dinner with him and his girlfriend without telling her that he wasn't Bono. Classy.

We'll be celebrating the album's release tonight at a party in Hollywood. In the meantime, our friends at Spinner.com are hosting a listening party where you can listen to the entire album here. Or better yet, pick up a copy here. I think you'll enjoy it.
