Tegan And Sara will release a brand new album next February, it has been announced, following the recent release of a sort of best of EP, ‘In Your Head: An Introduction To Tegan And Sara’. The new album, ‘Heartthrob’, saw the indie twins collaborate on much of the songwriting, where as on past records the sisters usually each contributed their own standalone compositions.
Says Sara of the new record: “No one will confuse this with any of our other records. It’s got a bigger, bolder, happier sound”. While Tegan said of the songwriting process this time round: “I kept asking myself: Can I hear this in an arena? Can I hear this on a teenager’s iPod as they’re riding the bus to school?”
You can see whether the news songs do indeed work in an arena at Killers shows at the MEN Arena in Manchester and O2 Arena in London this week, where Tegan And Sara are supporting.
