They Might Be Giants Drop New Single, Set To Release Advance Tracks
They Might Be Giants have released a new track, "Can't Keep Johnny Down," the first offering from their new album Join Us, set for released on July 19th. To give fans a little preview, the band has decided to released advance copies of several tracks on iTunes' "Complete My Album" on April 26th.
Along with "Can't Keep Johnny Down," there's the electro-ballad "Never Knew Love" and the pure folk pop of "Old Pine Box," which features timeless hooky elements such as harmonies, handclaps and vocoder.
While the band's name may not immediately jog your memory, if you've been watching TV anytime for the past decade and a half you've heard their music. The group has composed themes for The Daily Show With Jon Stewart and Malcom In The Middle, the latter of which won them Grammy. Listen to and download "Can't Keep Johnny Down" below.
