Dial-A-Song (2018)

Dial-A-Song's 2018 iteration is an ongoing project by They Might Be Giants and the latest round of Dial-A-Song, following up 2015's iteration.

In late September 2017, the band announced alongside the 2018 Instant Fan Club that Dial-A-Song would be returning for another year. Much like in 2015, each song in 2018 has been accompanied by videos on the band's ParticleMen YouTube channel and the toll-free number (844) 387-6962. MP3 and WAV downloads of all of 2018 and 2015's songs are available on DialASong.com for a $30 USD Dial-A-Song Direct subscription (included free with the 2018 IFC).

Songs from this iteration of Dial-A-Song consisted of tracks from January 2018's I Like Fun album, and songs from the forthcoming The Escape Team and My Murdered Remains albums (the latter of which will compile all remaining 2015 Dial-A-Song and 2018 tracks over two discs).

In 2017, They Might Be Giants announced that Dial-A-Song would return for 2018 in a similar fashion to the 2015 iteration. Unlike in 2015, however, some songs this year had their initial debut on an album—I Like Fun, released on January 19, 2018 (though new music videos accompanied these songs for Dial-A-Song). The band took a month-long break in August, when no material was released.

While every song in the 2015 iteration had an accompanying music video and digital single released for it via streaming services such as Spotify and download services such as iTunes, the 2018 iteration did not continue this. While music videos are featured for I Like Fun tracks and many of the new songs, a few were released on YouTube accompanied by a static image. Digital downloads for most new songs have been only available thus far through the Dial-A-Song Direct subscription available at dialasong.com.
