The first single from Glean, in stores April 21


2015 is already a landmark year in two-time Grammy winners They Might Be Giants’ illustrious career. With the return of their Dial-A-Song service, the band is posting a new track each week to unanimous exclamations of joy from fans old and new. With a toll-free number at (844) 387-6962 and a sweet new web site at, most of the tracks arrive with fully produced animations.


In celebration, the band is releasing GLEAN on April 21. It includes 16 songs direct from these first weeks of their Dial-A-Song service. The range of these recordings is truly staggering. From the manic violin-driven "Music Jail, Pt. 1 & 2" to the bluesy grinding of "Underwater Woman," Glean comprises some of They Might Be Giants’ most vital work of their 30+ year career. With the album, TMBG’s sound is in equal turns as rocking, surprising, effervescent, and truly original as they have ever been. The highly anticipated album is produced with long-time collaborator Pat Dillett (St. Vincent, Mike Doughty, Donald Fagen, Mary J. Blige, David Byrne, etc), and comes hot on the heels of 2013’s wildly popular Nanobots.


But there is much more in store for They Might Be Giants in 2015. A monthly residency in their spiritual home of Williamsburg, Brooklyn started in January and the next one is already sold out, as were the last two in advance. Two more albums of original material are on the docket for the end of the year, and the first leg of TMBG’s window-rattling national tour begins in mid-April. International touring is planned for early fall, along with a second leg of US and Canadian shows.
