Drake. Justin Bieber. Celine Dion. These are all familiar names of Canadian artists making hits on the international stage of mainstream billboard music. Tegan and Sara, everyone’s favourite sister-duo group, is about to make yet another splash into the oceans of popular music – their new album is set to release this year, on June 3.
Whether you are a casual Tegan & Sara fan who only knows their dance-centric electro-pop hits like “Closer” or “I Was A Fool”, or a die-hard fan who’s teenage initiation years were filled with the likes of the more indie This Business of Art and So Jealous, their latest album “Love You to Death” will be released to much awaited anticipation. This will be their 8th album, ever since their first album was released 17 years ago, in 1999.
The twin sisters have since garnered a teenage cult following both in Canada and internationally. Both are active politically and socially, especially in LGBTQ advocacy, where they’re revered as role models by many fans.
Love You to Death is a follow up to Tegan & Sara‘s pop breakthrough album of 2013, Heartthrob, who’s singles were double platinum and platinum certified in Canada. In addition to their recent success, the duo were also featured in the LEGO movie’s hit song “Everything is Awesome” with The Lonely Island, and performed the song at the 2015’s Academy Awards.
Love You to Death is once again produced by Greg Kurstin, who has produced songs for music artists such as Adele, Sia, and Ellie Goulding. Preorders for the album will begin April 8th. If you are a Torontonian and a super fan, Tegan & Sara will be performing in Toronto at the iHEARTRADIO Fest on May 6th. You can purchase ticket to their upcoming performance via Ticketmaster. We eagerly await the release of “Love You to Death”.
