A news article from The Free-Lance Star offers some tidbits from John Flansburgh regarding the two upcoming They Might Be Giants albums. On Here Comes Science, John says the album will tackle "more controversial issues, like evolution—pretty much everything," and that the band had to hire a scientific consultant for the project. Regarding the next adult album, "I think this next rock album... my ambition for it is to blend more of the home-recording techniques that we presented in the '80s with modern sounds. I'd like to make a more insane-sounding record, to be perfectly honest." The article also states that TMBG was "basically cut out of" providing the soundtrack for the upcoming film Coraline, but that the songs they created for the project will be released eventually.
