Tegan and Sara have shared another single from their forthcoming 10th album Crybaby, which arrives October 21 via Mom+Pop Music. It’s called ‘Faded Like a Feeling’, and it follows earlier cuts ‘Fucking Up What Matters’ and ‘Yellow’. Check out a video for it below.
“It’s the Call It Off of this new album according to Sara; a simple, stripped down, emotional gut punch,” Tegan wrote in an Instagram post about the track. “I wrote three versions of the song before we recorded it; Sara kept pressing me to dig deeper, and what started as a love song, turned into something entirely different. In my substack this week I wrote, ‘…sometimes, writing about something you have isn’t half as interesting as writing about something you’ve lost.’ I lifted some of my favorite Sara lyrics from an unreleased song of hers, so it feels like a true T&S collaboration; we even sing the bridge as a duet. While the song would have been perfect for fall, we felt like you needed to hear it sooner than that.”
