They Might Be Giants reveal new album details

'The Else' was produced by the Dust Brothers

They Might Be Giants have revealed the details of their forthcoming album.

‘The Else’ features 13 tracks, and is due out July 13.

The veteran rock duo tapped the Dust Brothers to handle production duties on their first rock album since 2004’s ‘The Spine’.


“We came up with a couple of ways of working,” frontman John Flansburgh told Billboard.

“We got loops from them early in the process, a huge collection of their delightful drum loops. That’s how we started a bunch of the tracks.

“Then they came to New York and helped us reassess stuff we’d written and demoed on our own. There’s a third of the songs which they were not involved with, but we wanted to be of a piece with the rest of the record,” he said.

Tracks on the album include ‘The Cap’n’, ‘Whithered Hope’, ‘Upside Down Frown’ and ‘Take Out The Trash’.

They Might Be Giants plan to preview songs from their forthcoming album on the following tour dates:

Newmarket, NH Stone Church (May 3)


Burlington, VT Higher Ground (4)

Northampton, MAs Iron Horse (5)
