The Else is a full return to form for alternative rock legends They Might Be Giants, who started their illustrious career twenty-five years ago. The album, to be released in stores on July 10th and on iTunes may 15th, was created in collaboration with LA producers the Dust Brothers (Beck, Beastie Boys, Hanson) and NYC engineer/producer Patrick Dillett (Mary J. Blige, David Byrne, Soul Coughing).
They Might Be Giants have been busy on other fronts as well. The band contributed a number of original songs to Neil Gaiman’s “Coraline,” an animated feature starring Dakota Fanning. They launched their free monthly podcast which has popped into the top ten on iTunes music podcast chart (one of the few non-broadcast related efforts to do so). The band also continues to contribute music to The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and the website HomestarRunner.com.
