Fresh off their 10th studio album, Still Jealous, released back in February, Tegan and Sara are returning with Crybaby, their Mom+Pop Music debut after a 15-years relationship with Sire Records. The new album will arrive around the same time as their television series, High School, based on their recent memoir, and a graphic novel titled Junior High.
Following previous singles “Faded Like a Feeling,” “Fucking Up What Matters,” and “Yellow,” the latest cut from the project, “I Can’t Grow Up,” is a self-described “snotty nosed pop song about not being able to grow out bad habits in relationships.” The accompanying music video, directed by Mark Myers, is playful, minimal, and puts Tegan and Sara’s unyielding chemistry front-and-center.
“‘I Can’t Grow Up’ was musically inspired by Chicago band Dehd and their album Flower of Devotion,” according to Sara Quin. “The song started on bass, an instrument I'd never written with until Crybaby, and I was channeling a little bit of Emily Kempf from Dehd, and Peter Hook from New Order.”
