NEW YORK, Aug. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Dave Matthews Band, who are in the midst of a highly successful summer tour, will release a new single and video from their acclaimed Stand Up album next week.

Mr. Meyers was nominated for 6 MTV video music awards this year alone for his work on Missy Elliot's "Lose Control." The video was shot in various locations around Brooklyn and Harlem in New York City. A highly conceptual episodic clip, the video features Ms. Roberts as the dream girl with the members of Dave Matthews Band inhabiting her dreams. This is Ms. Roberts' first filmed role since the birth of her twins last year. "Dreamgirl" is not the only place that DMB can be seen on television. The band has also joined with the NFL ON CBS to star in a series of promotional spots featuring the album's title track, "Stand Up." The spots are scheduled to debut this weekend during CBS Sports regular programming.
