Phone Power is TMBG's 19th studio album and the last of three albums compiling songs from the 2015 iteration of Dial-A-Song.

The album was announced in late 2014 along with the service itself and the other two albums as a "Dial-A-Song compilation" which would be included as benefits in the 2015 They Might Be Giants Instant Fan Club.

It was released digitally on March 8, 2016 for the public (and one day earlier for Instant Fan Club members), and the first They Might Be Giants release to feature a pay-what-you-want model.

The cover art was done by Paul Sahre.
