One-time Denton musician Sarah Jaffe hasn’t cooled her jets so far in 2013. The Dallas indie music darling has so far seen two big announcements: a contribution to an upcoming Disney-Pixar film and another music video from her celebrated sophomore release, The Body Wins.
Jaffe is providing the vocal music for “The Blue Umbrella,” the animated short that will lead into Monsters University, the Monsters, Inc. prequel that’s due in June.
Not long after Jaffe performed “Mannequin Woman” on Jimmy Kimmel Live, she saw the music video of the single premiere online at Entertainment Weekly. To view the video — in which Jaffe seems to disintegrate and reappear in wispy brushstrokes (if said brushstrokes were blown around by a blue norther) — check it out at http://bit.ly/149yyku .
