John F. here. Dial-A-Song is here! Since January until the beginning of August TMBG have been posting a new song on our Dial-A-Song service every week. We are currently organizing for September and beyond, as well as working on our badminton skills in our secret mountain laboratory. So what better moment than now to quickly review all that is already brand new and free for all to enjoy? Let’s get started.


First off, there is the traditional “telephony” version. People love this because it sounds so good! Just call toll free at (844) 387-6962 and enjoy They Might Be Giants' music wherever you are.

Then, for sophisticates, there is the website www.DialASong.com and the beautiful and free Dial-A-Song app. It really works on all smart phones, sounds great, and will dazzle even your grumpiest friends.
Why not get it? And why not tell them how to get it too by forwarding them this email? 

If you have an iPhone, you’ll want this link: http://bit.ly/tmbgiApp 

If you have an Android phone you’ll want this one: http://bit.ly/tmbgApp










                                       
                                   
                               
                           
                       
                   
               
           
   




                           
                       
                   
               










You might recognize the art style of the TMBG app from videos of ours, like Why Does the Sun Shine? and With the Dark. Both of those were created by Hine Mizushima. She is an amazing artist. She even has projects on etsy here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/hine

But here is a little sneak peek of the ALL EMBROIDERED animated project she has coming up for us… we’ll let you figure out the song!

THE DIAL-A-SONG RADIO NETWORK NEEDS YOU!


Are you a DJ or starting a radio show this fall with your BEST FRIEND and want to be part of TMBG's Dial-A-Song Radio Network? Do it. Go here for all the info https://www.theymightbegiants.com/radio-network/   






SEPTEMBER IS ALMOST HERE, AND IT IS THE BEGINNING OF OUR EUROPEAN SHOWS

They Might Be Giants' next run of shows begins in a little over a month. What’s it like? What’s it NOT like? Loud. Quiet. Yelling. Swear words. Pretty harmony. Talking too much. Not talking at all. Challenging musical improvisation. It’s a six-piece band and everybody is rockin’ out.
