Alt rock band They Might Be Giants has resurrected their Dial-A-Song service. The service originally launched in 1983 and ran for a number of years. Fans could call in and listen to new songs from the band that were recorded on a consumer answering machine.
Now, fans can listen to a new track every week by calling a toll free number (844-387-6962), or by visiting the Dial-A-Song website.
Tracks will be released every week for the entirety of 2015. They’ll debut on Slate’s “The Gist” podcast. Then, the tracks will be available on Dial-A-Song, YouTube, and digital retailers.
The band has also set up a Dial-A-Song Drip account. For $30 fans will get a download of every track. That’s 52 tracks in total.
