SEPTEMBER 27 RELEASE ON SIRE
HIGH SCHOOL, TEGAN AND SARA’S FIRST MEMOIR, TO BE PUBLISHED ON SEPTEMBER 24
Tegan and Sara give us early MTV vibes with their video for their first released track, ‘I’ll Be Back Someday’. The song is off their forthcoming album release, Hey, I’m Just Like You which will be available on September 27 (Sire Records).
Those four words – I’ll be back someday – also reverberate
as a hint of the full-circle nature of their ninth studio album. While revisiting their teen years for their first memoir,
– which will be published September 24 – Tegan
and Sara discovered two cassette tapes containing their very first songs, written between the ages of 15 and 17.
Hey, I’m Just Like You
is a return to the songs contained on those 1990s
cassettes with a contemporary production.
The girls will be embarking on a special US tour supporting
the book and album starting in Brooklyn on September 24 at Murmrr. All tour dates
About High School
a most anticipated book of fall by O, the Oprah Magazine, Publishers Weekly, and Entertainment Weekly, High School is the revelatory and unique coming-of-age story of Sara and Tegan Quin, identical twins from Calgary, Alberta, who grew up at the height of
grunge and rave culture in the nineties, well before they became the celebrated musicians and global LGBTQ icons we know today. While grappling with their identity and sexuality, often alone, they also faced academic meltdown, their parents’ divorce, and the
looming pressure of what might come after high school. Written in alternating chapters from both Tegan’s and Sara’s points of view, the book is a raw account of the drugs, alcohol, love, music, and friendship they explored in their formative years. A transcendent
story of first loves and first songs, High School captures the tangle of discordant and parallel memories of two sisters who grew up in distinct ways even as they lived just down the hall from each another.
