Tegan and Sara release new album ‘Crybaby,’ drop video for ‘Smoking Weed Alone’

The innovative, multi-platinum Canadian duo Tegan and Sara have released ‘Crybaby,’ their tenth studio album. The album release follows the debut of ‘High School,’ the original coming-of-age series co-created and executive produced by Tegan and Sara Quin, and Clea DuVall.

Tegan and Sara’s Amazon Freevee series ‘High School,’ based off of the twins’ critically acclaimed, New York Times bestselling memoir of the same name, debuted its first three episodes at the Toronto International Film Festival and made its debut on Amazon Freevee last week. Shot in Calgary and produced by Plan B Entertainment and Amazon Studios, ‘High School’ stars TikTok creators and TV newcomers Railey and Seazynn Gilliland, portraying the high school versions of Tegan and Sara. Special guest stars Cobie Smulders and Kyle Bornheimer play the twins’ parents.

‘Crybaby’ was produced by John Congleton (Angel Olsen, Sharon Van Etten), Sara Quin, and Tegan Quin and recorded at Studio Litho in Seattle and Sargent Recorders in Los Angeles. “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,” says Tegan. “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.” Sara adds with a laugh, “Maybe I am the renovator. I’m the house-flipper of the Tegan and Sara band.”
