Tegan and Sara performed “Closer” on Conan.

Watch it below and pick up the song on iTunes or Amazon MP3

20 Sep

Tegan and Sara premiered “Closer,” the lead single off their forthcoming studio album set for a January 2013 release.

“Sara calls CLOSER my ‘let’s get it on’ track” Tegan explains to Rolling Stone. “And although I do imagine that this would be an okay song to make out to, all I intended was to write something sweet that reminded the listener of a time before sex, complicated relationships, drama and heart break. In short, I was writing about my youth. A time when we got CLOSER by linking arms and walking down our school hallway or talked all night on the telephone about every thought or experience we’d ever had. It wasn’t necessarily even about hooking up or admitting your feelings back then. In fact THAT rarely happened. It was the anticipation of something MAYBE happening that was truly exciting and satisfying. We were perpetually getting CLOSER, yet we rarely got physical with one another, if ever. These relationships existed in a state of sexual and physical ambiguity. Is there anything more romantic than that?”

On their new album, Tegan and Sara worked in the studio with Greg Kurstin (The Shins, Lily Allen, Sia), Mike Elizondo (Regina Spektor, Mastodon, Rilo Kiley), and Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Neon Trees, M83, Moving Units). During the new album’s creation, Tegan and Sara brought their fans along for the ride by offering an inside look at the process of recording through Tegan and Sara’s Carpool Confessional, a weekly video show filmed from the back of their car and featuring a wide variety of guests and collaborators.

In addition to a handful of headlining shows and a performance at Austin City Limits, Tegan and Sara have some massive tours coming up with the likes of The Black Keys and The Killers. A full list of tour dates is below.

Beloved Canadian pop-rock icons Tegan and Sara will release a very special DVD/CD package, entitled Get Along, on Warner Bros. Records on November 15th, 2011.

Get Along is a collection of three films and a live album that offers viewers a rare and intimate look into the lives of widely celebrated songwriters, performers, and musicians Tegan and Sara Quin. The first film, States, is a 30-minute documentary that uses American touring footage and interviews with Tegan and Sara as a backdrop to illuminate their early career beginnings and unique connection with their fanbase. The second film, India, is a 25-minute documentary shot during Tegan and Sara’s first-ever tour of India, using interview footage with Tegan, Sara, and a cast of family and friends to chronicle diverse reflections on road life. The third film, For The Most Part, is a 70-minute stripped-down studio concert, shot before a live audience of 75 fans, friends, and family over two days at The Warehouse Studios in Vancouver, BC.

Get Along will come in three configurations. The first is a standard DVD/CD that includes States, India, and For The Most Part, plus an audio CD of the 15 live tracks on the DVD (see below for track-listing). The second is a Direct-to-Consumer piece that includes the three films and live concert audio, plus three signed lithographs, two digital instant grat tracks (live versions of “Back In Your Head” and “Wake Up Exhausted”) that will be delivered upon pre-order at teganandsara.com, and two digital bonus tracks (the previously unreleased “Northshore” Chuck Brody Remix and a live version of “I Bet It Stung”) that will be delivered on November 15th. iTunes versions of Get Along will also be available via the digital retailer, with the CD component available in the Music Store and the DVD component available separately in the Movie Store.

Get Along is now available for pre-order at teganandsara.com. Stay tuned to the site for information about upcoming screenings of the films, plus very special Q&A sessions with Tegan and Sara to be held in November.

Known for their unhinged live shows and collection of songs that have been praised by Spin, Entertainment Weekly, Esquire and USA Today, Steel Train is very excited to announce a new album and North American tour with Tegan and Sara. The 8-week tour that began in Massachusetts on February 12th, will give Steel Train a chance to debut new songs from their upcoming summer release (on a soon to be announced record label). The premiere track from the band’s new album will be the edgy TURNPIKE GHOST, which lead singer and songwriter Jack Antonoff says, “Is a return to where we come from. We grew up playing legion halls and firehouses and the sound systems were always so bad we had to go ape shit to put on a real show, and somehow that inspired the music and lyrics to reflect all that madness.” TURNPIKE GHOST is now available for free download on the band’s official website – www.steeltrain.net. Steel Train is also proud to announce their performance at this year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on Saturday, April 17th.

Produced by Steven McDonald (Be Your Own Pet, Imperial Teen), Steel Train’s new album is the follow up to their record, TRAMPOLINE, which saw the band perform on Late Night with Conan O’Brien and share the stage with The Silversun Pickups, Ben Folds, Gomez and Say Anything, and appear at Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza, to name a few.

From the ambitious rocker TOUCH ME BAD to the playful SOLDIER IN THE ARMY, from the passionate album rock of BEHAVIOR to the rebellious YOU ARE DANGEROUS, this versatile new album brilliantly shows the strength of a band with a mission and as Antonoff adds “This new record is about getting the fuck out of bed with your mind open to the world – no bitterness. Nothing inspires me more than when I see that in people.”

Every year, Neil and Pegi Young host the non-profit Bridge School Concert, benefiting the unique learning complex which assists children with severe physical impairments and challenging communication needs. The first was held in 1986, and the event is known as a totally unique musical event. Over the years the line-up of participants reads like a history of rock & roll.

Three years ago, Apple’s iTunes began offering live recordings from these legendary shows, and the first three volumes feature some of the most popular musical artists in the world. Since the concerts are basically acoustic presentations, the performers perform versions of some of their biggest songs like they never have before. It has turned the Bridge School Concerts into a yearly highlight, and offers a chance to hear truly original performances.

Volume IV, 22-track collection of live performances is available digitally at iTunes now and features a wide range of artists including John Mellencamp, Josh Groban, Trent Reznor, John Mayer, Tom Waits & Kronos Quartet, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ministry, My Morning Jacket, Norah Jones, Tegan & Sara, Death Cab for Cutie and Band of Horses.

As always, the proceeds from the iTunes digital downloads will be donated to the Bridge School, where one of the thrusts of their learning program is the use of advanced augmentative and alternative communication systems and assistive technology. Over the history of the concerts since 1986, some of the most exciting and surprising performances of live music have become a hallmark of the shows, and most of them are now available for the world to hear and purchase.
