petra haden and the new prius commercials

Just saw the new Prius commercial, and noticed something familiar with the accompanying music. It's Petra Haden!

From USAToday:
Singer Petra Haden was commissioned for three Prius ads in all, and the tracks will be available next month.

I first saw Petra Haden open for The Decemberists in 2005. She and her accompanying a cappella group performed all the songs from The Who Sell Out (they were presented as Petra Haden and the Sell Outs; however, for the actual album recording Petra Haden Sings: The Who Sell Out, Petra is singing all the parts herself). I absolutely *loved* their version of "I Can See For Miles":
