They Might Be Giants' new album, Join Us, is the recordings that their fans have been waiting 20 years for! Impossibly catchy, sometimes strange and always original, the album is a stunning return to form. As the band turns away from the family-oriented projects that dominated their output in recent years on Join Us, we find the band has returned to their singular sensibility that made them an instant phenomenon in the world of alternative rock. Join Us is an electrifying mix of clever, maddeningly catchy songwriting and studio mastery. The album was created in the brand new private studio of their long-time collaborator Patrick Dillett (David Byrne, Mary J. Blige, Tegan and Sara, Doveman).
The advance track offering opens with "Can't Keep Johnny Down"--a summer-perfect pop single that will get instantly stuck in your head and make you want to roll down the windows. The electronic ballad "Never Knew Love" puts a new and simple twist on the love song. The pure folk-pop of "Old Pine Box" showcases the band's signature harmonies, handclaps and the always popular, never anticipated vocoder.
The advance tracks will be released digitally April 26th on iTunes through their "Complete My Album" program on April 26th, with the full album arriving in all digital and physical outlets later this year through Idlewild/Rounder Records.
