They Might Be Giants' new album The Else
Idlewild CD in stores July 10, iTunes exclusive download arrives May 15
13 new songs produced by the Dust Brothers, Pat Dillett and They Might Be Giants! First run of the CD includes a full length bonus disc and original photographs by Marcel Dzama!
"It's already been a pretty exciting year for TMBG. Being a clue in the NY Times crossword puzzle, seeing the TED conference, and getting to work with the Dust Brothers alone would have been plenty. The Generation Schools project has gotten approved, so we are proud to report all our fund-raising efforts in December will help create an entirely new school in Brooklyn this year.
We are going to get down to work now, and hit the road to get the good word out about our brand new album "The Else." The iTunes exclusive we are told will drop on May 15. Now, we are a small fish in that very big pond, and we're just reporting the promises that have been made to us right now, but that's what we've been told! The real physical album, which is a deluxe package including some amazing photographs by artist Marcel Dzama, will also include a full length bonus disc that compiles some new rarities as well as some hi-fi versions of some podcast favorites. All in all it's 13 songs that we are very proud of, and we suspect y'all will dig it too.
Happy to report we are going to be back at The Stone Pony, one of our favorite places in the world to play. We want to encourage people to go to that show - we know it's a little before "the season" but we are hoping for a strong turnout. We gotta keep that place open!
Can't wait to see everybody who is coming out to this first of many legs of this year's touring!
Peace now - really!"
