Tegan and Sara Announce 10th album ‘Crybaby’ Details, share new single ‘Yellow’

July 12, 2022

Tegan and Sara have released details about their 10th studio album ‘Crybaby’ – and the official video for the lead off single, ‘Yellow’!

The new album will follow up 2019’s ‘Hey, I’m Just Like You’ and will be released on October 21.

The album was produced by John Congleton (Sharon Van Etten, Future Islands), Sara Quin and Tegan Quin at Studio Litho in Seattle and Sargent Recorders in Los Angeles.

Sara said, “[‘Yellow’] was written after we began to take steps to heal the bruises we have both carried with us since adolescence and early adulthood – wounds that never quite healed right and flare up seasonally, sending us spiralling backward in time. Are we doomed to remain forever 15, breaking up and breaking apart? I hope not.”

Sara talked about the Mark Myers-directed ‘Yellow’ video, “[It] was shot in Vancouver, a city that didn’t feel big enough to hold us both when we arrived here the first time. Twenty-two years later, we’re back, calling it home.”

Tegan on the new album, “This was the first time where, while we were still drafting our demos, we were thinking about how the songs were going to work together. It wasn’t even just that Sara was making lyric changes or reorganizing the parts to my songs, it was that she was also saying to me, ‘This song is going to be faster’, or ‘It’s going to be in a different key’.”

Tegan and Sara are touring North American in October!
