TEGAN AND SARA Release New Single ‘I’ll Be Back Someday’
The tracklisting for their ninth studio album, Hey, I’m Just Like You, has also been revealed.
Tegan and Sara have released the first single off their upcoming album, Hey, I’m Just Like You, due to be released on September 27th.
New single I’ll Be Back Someday is catchy and full of character. With a punk rock tone meeting an indie vibe, the track interestingly merges the two genres creating something very unique.
While revisiting their teen years for their first memoir, High School – which will be published in hardcover, ebook and audiobook on September 24th – Tegan and Sara discovered two cassette tapes containing their very first songs, written between the ages of 15 and 17. I’ll Be Back Someday dates from this period, as the sisters comment:
We had been begging for an electric guitar, and on our 16th birthday, we got one. Of course, we had to share it, so it became a weapon that we stole from each other’s rooms, barricading ourselves behind locked doors with guitar in hand. Screaming over the small amplifier, we tested our voices by writing punk songs, shredding our thumbs on the strings.
With only minor tweaks to lyrics and structure, we tried to remain true to the original essence of each song. This is the record we never could have made as teenagers, full of songs we never could have written as adults.
