They Might Be Giants have returned with more kids’ music, with the forthcoming release of “Here Comes Science,” a full-length animated DVD movie and album.

The 2-disc set will come out exclusively via Amazon and iTunes on Sept. 1, with the rest of retailers getting dibs on Sept. 22.

The duo — John Flansburgh and John Linnell – will be updating their iTunes podcast with new tunes and video clips from “Here Comes Science” starting in August, and will follow up its release with a full-blown tour this late summer and fall.

The project has a little chutzpah behind it, as TMBG earned themselves a Grammy this year for last year’s “Here Comes the 123s,” an album aimed at an even younger demo. The group’s first kids release was “No!” in 2002, followed by the CD/picture book “Bed, Bed, Bed.” They got cozy with Disney starting with “123s.”
