WAW: John Maus - Enterprise

Yesterday while I was browsing for some underground Maus releases, I discoverd this video for a song "Enterprise". The music for this song was written and performed by John Maus and the video was recorded by Jennifer Juniper Stratford. This could be a possible new release by Mr. John Maus but there is no official confirmation of that. So we have to wait to see and enjoy this wonderful song in the meanwhile.
