It’s been two years since the long-running alternative rock duo They Might Be Giants—singer-guitarist John Flansburgh and singer-guitarist and Hudson Valley resident John Linnell—have released a new album. This month, the outfit unveiled I Like Fun, their 20th (!) studio album.

Fans will be delighted to find that the new full-length more than reliably lives up to its playful title and the group’s legacy.

I Like Fun is out now on Idlewild Records. For more information, visit https://www.theymightbegiants.com/.
