Three years removed from the release of their last album, 2016’s Love You To Death, Tegan And Sara have revealed plans for their forthcoming ninth studio album. Slated to arrive September 27th, Hey, I’m Just Like You finds the twin sister duo reimagining a set of recently unearthed, raw and rough early recordings they made during their teenage years. The album’s forthcoming release coincides with their soon-to-be published memoir, appropriately titled High School, which lands in book stores September 24th.
“While working on our memoir, we discovered lost cassette tapes that had been unheard for over 20 years,” Tegan explains in an official statement. “They contained dozens of our first songs, written between the ages of 15 and 17…we immediately recognized the songs as an essential part of our high school story.” The duo adds, “This is the record we never could have made as teenagers, full of songs we never could have written as adults.”
Watch the trailer for the album below and stay tuned for tracks from the project, which are bound to surface in the coming weeks.
