Download TMBG where you like to download, and support TMBG!

They Might Be Giants' new rarities album ALBUM RAISES NEW AND TROUBLING QUESTIONS is out!
In the many months making and then promoting Join Us, They Might Be Giants created many recordings. Contained on this brand new full length album of rarities are many previously unheard tracks along with the new live version of "Cloisonné" heard on the official video of the song, a fantastic remix of "You Probably Get That A Lot" from the Elegant Too, plus the band’s now legendary appearance on The Onion AV Club’s Undercover series performing "Tubthumping" with the AV Club Choir. Rollicking new music from TMBG's Other Thing Brass Band sessions fill out the set, making ALBUM RAISES NEW AND TROUBLING QUESTIONS, a must-have for all TMBG music-lovers.
ORDER DIRECT FROM TMBG's SITE and RECEIVE THESE VIDEO BONUSES with the mp3: You Probably Get That A Lot, two versions of Can’t Keep Johnny Down, Spoiler Alert, and Cloisonné PLUS YOU GET A PDF BONUS with all FLAC and mp3 orders! You get complete instructions on how to build an 18′ paper monster hearse! You know you need that!
NOTE ABOUT CD ORDER VIA TMBG's SITE: Yes! You get a FREE digital download with your CD order. Right now it seems the graphic implies you are actually buying both as you put your cart together, but as you move through the ordering process you’ll receive a coupon code that will take the download charges off your purchase, so don’t get nervous. It’s all cool.
