Brooklyn’s beloved They Might Be Giants changed the face of children’s music in 2002 with the release of their first family album, No! The band teamed up with international children’s charity organization The Global Fund For Children and Emily Oberman of Pentagram NY this summer, asking people around to submit 3 photos – a portrait, their country’s flag & an image that represents their culture – via Twitter & Tumblr. The band received hundreds of submissions and feature quite a few in their new music video for the new extended version of “Alphabet of Nations.” All proceeds from limited edition “Alphabet of Nations” t-shirts & posters, go to the Global Fund for Children. Check out the new “Alphabet of Nations” video directed by Emily Oberman.

After the release of No!, They Might Be Giants saw continued success in the world of kid’s music with 2005’s Here Come The ABCs and 2008’s Here Come The 123s, both which received GRAMMY nominations. Here Come The 123s went on to earn the band their second GRAMMY Award, for “Best Children’s Album.” The bonus extended version of “Alphabet of Nations” appears on TMBG’s new deluxe edition re-issue of No! in celebration of the album’s 10-year anniversary.
