Sheryl and Justin Timberlake want to 'Sign Your Name' - watch the video premiere now!

We kind of forgot about Sheryl Crow...not in a completely off-the-radar kind of way, because she's always turning up on some tragic magazine like InStyle or that little thing printed on super cheap paper they give away free at the pharmacy counter that always has a name like 'LIVING NOW' or 'VIBRANT LIFE' or something, but we've more forgotten her in an "oh yeah she makes music too" way.

We know we're not the only ones in this boat, and we have a sneaking suspicion Sheryl knows too.  To remedy the situation, she's teamed up with the one and only Justin Timberlake to redo the classic (really?) Terence Trent D’Arby track 'Sign Your Name.'  It's a little...underwhelming...but perfectly nice, we suppose.  The video, however, looks a bit like something Bonnie Raitt would have done 15 years ago if she had become an alcoholic and couldn't be bothered anymore.  There's nothing obviously offensive about it, it's just a bit naff - something Justin's "people" must have picked up on, because he is NOWHERE TO BE FOUND.  You can kind of tell he's on backing vocals in the track, but anyone scouring the video for his adorable mug will be sorely disappointed. 

Ah well, back to the 'HEALTHY LIFESTYLE' cover then, Sher.
