‘Impossibly New’, A Dial-A-Song Track from They Might Be Giants That Marvels About the Novelty of Love

For the 17th week of their year-long Dial-A-Song project (previously), the band They Might Be Giants present “Impossibly New,” a tender love song that marvels about the novelty of love. Like the other songs of the project, the track will also be featured on the band’s upcoming record, Glean.

Walking through a world so dated
made of bones and wood so ancient
bitter dudes throwing rocks and flipping birds
in this town of rude deceivers
please make way for two believers
they can’t lie and their arms are open wide

the corner phone booth
in its youth
loved burning leaves and morning suits
it’s true
the only smokestack coming back is me for you
with love that’s impossibly new
