Dial-A-Song makes a comeback - and fans are loving it.
They Might Be Giants are continuing their legacy of innovation and originality by re-launching the Dial-A-Song streaming service. To celebrate, they unveil a new album entitled 'Glean' featuring songs recently featured on the music website.
They Might Be Giants to release 'Glean' this Spring
The Grammy winning rock band, responsible for one of the catchiest songs in history ('Birdhouse in Your Soul'), are making a comeback with what they became famous with in 1983; the Dial-A-Song service. Originally an answering machine that allowed listeners to hear their material, the service has been reconfigured to the internet, proving that these guys are pioneers in the world of free listening.
They Might Be Giants will be releasing a song and video every single week throughout the year on Dial-A-Song, with the first sixteen songs featuring on their forthcoming album 'Glean'. Produced by Pat Dillett, who has previously worked with the likes of St. Vincent, Mary J. Blige and David Byrne, it features the likes of latest track 'I'm A Coward' as well as violin heavy 'Music Jail, Pt. 1 & 2' and the upbeat and robotic 'Unpronounceable'.
The lead single is called 'Erase' and the band have called a video competition with the fans where three winners will be in with a chance of winning $1000. The deadline for all entries is April 7th. If you need more proof that They Might Be Giants are all about the fans, the band have unveiled a free live album to download: 'Flood Live in Australia'.
Catch the band on tour across North American from April to May. 'Glean' is set for release in Europe on April 20th 2015 and the US on April 21st through Lojinx Records.
