New Song – Fuzzy Man (Fuzzy Nation)

Sometimes we have the best job in the world. In this case not only did we have the opportunity to read a terrific book before its publication, which happened to be written by our friend John Scalzi, but he also subsequently asked us if we were interested in writing an “end-credits” song for it.

Well, DUH!

We’ve been dying to tell people about it for nearly six months, and at long last we’re proud to present Fuzzy Man (Fuzzy Nation), a song of such epic proportions that it could very well usher in a new golden age for overwrought, bombastic, emotionally-charged rock power ballads.

You have several options for your consumption of this wonderful, wonderful song: you can purchase it (our personal favorite choice), read it, watch it, or just listen to it (see player below). Pick one or several:

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

UPDATE: Also now available in various lossless/audio-nerd-friendly formats.

…and most certainly go treat yourself to a copy of Fuzzy Nation in the preferred media delivery system of your choice: hardback, ebook, and audiobook (read by WIL WHEATON (!)) are all available.

Mega-ton thanks to the star-addled cast of musicians who helped turn our rock anthem way past eleven:

Dave Hill – solo electric guitar
Scotty Lund – drums

and featuring the Heartwing Voices:
Sean Altman
Mike Lombardo
Kevin Murphy

And special kudos to Len Peralta for the “Fuzzy Man (Fuzzy Nation)” single cover art, which we look forward to having projected on a massive screen behind us as we collect our first Grammy.

    Mission accomplished, guys. I wasn’t going to buy Fuzzy Planet because I am a fan of the originals, but your interview with Scalzi and the song convinced me. I have ordered my copy at my local Barnes & Noble.

    Oddly, she said the store was not slated to receive any copies. I don’t know why this would be…

    Definitely lighter worthy! Perfect end title music!

    When I read Old Man’s War, which was just about the only good book published in 2007, I figured that John Scalzi was actually Robert Heinlein, who’d figured out how to inject his soul into this 21st century writer dude before his own body gave out. Because Heinlein could figure out how to do that. And now I learn that Scalzi is part of the Paul & Storm universe too! That’s almost too much for me to comprehend.

    Listening now (my first fiction audiobook. I also sometimes play video games because I like who wrote the end credits songs.) Somehow, Wil’s voice has just the right level of sarcasm and 2011tyness (the latter being, I believe, what Scalzi wanted to infuse this reboot with) for this book. Also, I smile a little every time Wil mentions Wheaton Aubrey or audiobooks. It’s perfect.

    ‘Course, it’ll put me further behind on the podcasts.

    “Shut up, Wheaton! You don’t get a vote in this any more. It’s done.”

    Tehehehe.

    I was disappointed not to hear this song at the end of the audiobook (unless it’s at the end of the Little Fuzzy audiobook included with the Fuzzy Nation one), but I played it when I got home.
