Music video by Ben Folds performing Jesusland. (C) 2005 SONY BMG MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT
Songs for Silverman is an album by Ben Folds, first released on April 26, 2005, by Epic Records in the United States. The album reached #13 on the Billboard 200, making it Folds' highest-charting album until the release of Way to Normal in September 2008.
The single "Jesusland" reached #42 on the UK airplay chart on 2 October 2005. It has also been playlisted by Xfm London and BBC Radio 2 (which lists it as "download only"). The track was slated for a UK single release on 12 September 2005, but it was mysteriously deleted and never made it to store shelves. The video for this single features Matt Lucas as a televangelist interspersed with scenes of a journey through what may well be "Jesusland" itself. The track was also featured in the 2008 documentary "Religulous" starring Bill Maher.
