They Might Be Giants have announced details of their new album, BOOK, which will be out October 29. It's out as a both an album as a 144-page art book that was a collaboration between the band and graphic designer Paul Sahre and Brooklyn street photographer Brian Karlsson. Sahre used a IBM’s Selectric typewriter as a thematic visual device throughout. “Paul took this crude device and showed what you could really do with it creatively," says John Flansburgh, "and combined with Brian’s photography it made up the secret sauce for the book.” There are also audio-only version of BOOk available on vinyl, CD, and cassette. Pre-orders are available.

The album includes singles "I Lost Thursday” and “I Broke My Own Rule,” and the new single is "I Can't Remember the Dream" which stomps along on a "Louie Louie"-esque guitar riff and features a video by frequent TMBG collaborator Alex Italics. “We have worked on a half dozen video projects with Alex Italics directing, and his sensibility really compliments our music," says John Linnell. "Creating any video around a song about dreams is going to be a dangerous assignment, but Alex managed to transcend the cliches. It’s an enigmatic idea but presented in a simple way, and even though there are comedic elements in there, it is paced in such a deadpan manner that it doesn’t short-circuit the vibe of the song."

TMBG rescheduled their 2020 tour, which included many Flood anniversary shows (and five sold-out shows at Bowery Ballroom), to 2022. All dates are listed below.
