Tegan and Sara share video for new single ‘Yellow,’ announce forthcoming album and tour

Twin sisters Tegan and Sara Quin have shared a video for their new single, “Yellow.” The track arrives alongside the announcement of their forthcoming album, Crybaby, out October 21st via Mom + Pop.

Today’s preview, “Yellow” is a delicate balance between a singalong chorus and distorted synths. Directed by Mark Myers, the accompanying video “was shot in Vancouver, a city that didn’t feel big enough to hold us both when we arrived here the first time,” Sara adds. “Twenty-two years later, we’ve back, calling it home.”

“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 spiraling backward in time,” Sara continues. “Are we doomed to remain forever 15, breaking up and breaking apart? I hope not.”

Watch the video for “Yellow” below.

“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,” Tegan explains of the album. “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.’ But Sara effectively improves everything of mine that she works on.”

“Maybe I am the renovator,” Sara adds. “I’m the house-flipper of the Tegan and Sara band.”

Aside from “Yellow,” the tracklist for the album has not yet been released. Pre-order Crybaby here.
