Nearly 30 years into their career together, the Johns of They Might Be Giants - Flansburgh and Linnell - have just released their 14th studio album, the entertaining and educational "Here Comes Science."

Continuing in their recent vein of music for children, the album touches on plenty of scientific topics, like paleontology, astronomy, and chemistry.

However, the band isn't only for kids - their catchy pop songs have found plenty of eager adult ears too.

They stopped by The Current studios for a live performance and chat.

Songs performed: "Meet The Elements," "Why Does the Sun Shine?" and "Istanbul (Not Constantinople)."
