Tegan and Sara Release First Album Single, “I’ll Be Back Someday”
The track is off their forthcoming Hey, I’m Just Like You.
The first single off Tegan and Sara’s September album, Hey, I’m Just Like You, is a punky bop with a spiraling earworm chorus reminiscent of their So Jealous days.
Sara herself directed and illustrated the animated lyric video (hello, Renaissance Woman), in which endearing cloud-shaped creatures experience commitment issues, run away, and promise (tentatively, possibly falsely) to come back someday. Watch it below.
Tickets go on sale tomorrow for the twins’ North American tour in support of their forthcoming memoir, High School. Their ninth studio album coincides with the book’s release; while doing writing research, T&S stumbled upon two cassette tapes containing the first songs they ever wrote as teenagers in the ’90s. They’ve updated and rebooted those songs for this record.
Hey, I’m Just Like You is out September 27 via Sire. Pre-order it here, and see a list of upcoming tour dates below. One dollar from every ticket sold benefits the Tegan and Sara Foundation, which fights for health, economic justice, and representation for LGBTQ girls and women.
