They Might Be Giants officially released their Mink Car album on the same day as the September 11, 2001 World Trade Center attacks. Mink Car Cover is a collaborative effort of nineteen great musicians to mark the ten-year anniversary of the attacks and cover the entire original album, song-by-song, as a fundraiser for the FDNY Foundation, a nonprofit organization that promotes “Fire Safety in New York City and the professional development, training, and education of their members”.
The musicians recording tracks for the album are Hank Green, Driftless Pony Club, Shael Riley and the Double Ice Backfire, Devo Spice, MC Frontalot, Tom Milsom, Marian Call, Beefy and Mustin, Molly Lewis, brentalfloss, Mike Lombardo, Nuclear Bubble Wrap, Aivi Tran, The Doubleclicks, Jonathan Mann, R_Garcia, and Hello, the Future! with album art by Ryan North.
Both digital downloads and a limited-edition CD version of the album are available.
