A new EP foreshadowing new album.

They Might Be Giants have an album coming this summer called Join Us, but a four-song advance EP has already been released to iTunes.


All four tracks, “Can’t Keep Johnny Down”, “Cloisonne”, “Never Knew Love”, and “Old Pine Box” already have a place on the album, so this isn’t going to be like Indestructible Object from 2004 when the EP was three-fifths exclusive material. But TMGB have a “complete my album” program set up for the downloads so that, come July, customers won’t have to pay for these four songs twice.


It’s just a few seconds shy of ten minutes, but these guys have never been much on length.
