Tegan and Sara haben die Veröffentlichung ihres neuen, neunten Studioalbums "Hey, I'm Just Like You" für den 27. September angekündigt – und es wird eine Rückkehr zu den frühen, punkigen Wurzeln sein, ergänzt um einen Schuss Pop ihrer späteren Jahre und basierend weitestgehend auf Songtexten aus der damaligen Zeit. Die Inspiration kam den kanadischen Schwestern, als sie im vergangenen Jahr ihre Memoiren schrieben, die ebenfalls im September unter dem Titel "High School" erscheinen. Unten seht ihr einen Trailer für das Album mit tollen VHS-Vintage-Aufnahmen der jungen Quin-Schwestern. 

"Last year while writing our new memoir, we came across two cassette tapes with dozens of songs we wrote in high school", kommentiert Tegan unten im Post dazu. "Defiant and melodramatic, the songs captured the exultation and grief of first loves, first losses, ecstatic kiss-offs, and psychedelic tributes to the friendships we had as teenagers. It had been over twenty years since we had heard the songs and quite honestly, we both expected to listen once, cringe, and bury them for another couple decades. But they were good. Like, really good. They were raw, and in some cases the lyrics were hard to decipher. But the melodies, the honesty in the words, and the joy listening to them after all these years was undeniable. We decided immediately that those songs were the demos we’d use to build the new Tegan and Sara record."

Das neue Album wird 12 Songs enthalten, die sozusagen ein Extrakt aus 20 der damaligen High-School-Demos sind. "In some cases, Sara sings songs I wrote, and in other cases I sing songs she wrote. For the first time ever, we share vocal duties on a handful of songs making them the first truly 'Tegan AND Sara' songs", kommentiert Tegan weiter. Die Aufnahmen für das Album fanden im April und Mai in Vancouver, Produzentin ist Alex Hope. Auch ansonsten waren an der Entstehung ausschließlich Frauen beteiligt: "It is also the FIRST Tegan and Sara album produced, performed, engineered, mixed, and mastered by a team of all women", schließt der Post. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The new Tegan and Sara album Hey I’m Just Like You, Out September 27. Last year while writing our new memoir, we came across two cassette tapes with dozens of songs we wrote in high school. Defiant and melodramatic, the songs captured the exultation and grief of first loves, first losses, ecstatic kiss-offs, and psychedelic tributes to the friendships we had as teenagers. It had been over twenty years since we had heard the songs and quite honestly, we both expected to listen once, cringe, and bury them for another couple decades. But they were good. Like, really good. They were raw, and in some cases the lyrics were hard to decipher. But the melodies, the honesty in the words, and the joy listening to them after all these years was undeniable. We decided immediately that those songs were the demos we’d use to build the new Tegan and Sara record. Hey, I’m Just Like You has twelve songs, but in making those twelve songs we pulled sections from nearly twenty of those lost high school demos. We kept the original lyrics where we could, and we only wrote four new sections. In some cases, Sara sings songs I wrote, and in other cases I sing songs she wrote. For the first time ever, we share vocal duties on a handful of songs making them the first truly “Tegan AND Sara” songs. Alex Hope produced the record in Vancouver, where we recorded this past April and May. It is also the FIRST Tegan and Sara album produced, performed, engineered, mixed, and mastered by a team of all women. Produced by Alex Hope Engineered by Rachael Findlen Mixed by Beatriz Artola Mastered by Emily Lazar Assistant engineering by Annie Kennedy Tegan Quin: Vocals, guitar Sara Quin: Vocals, guitar, glockenspiel Alex Hope: Guitar, keyboards, piano, synths, programming, backing vocals Carla Azar: Drums Catherine Hiltz: Bass We cannot wait for you to hear our new record, out September 27th on all platforms. You can pre-save it now on Spotify. Stay tuned for new music shortly, as well as tour dates, videos, and special-pre-order packages. We think you’re going to love the new record. Dare we go so far as to prophesize; it might be your new favorite?
