For Immediate Release

TEGAN AND SARA IN THE STUDIO RECORDING SEVENTH ALBUM AND FOLLOW-UP TO 2009âS CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED ALBUM SAINTHOOD

RECORDING WITH GREG KURSTIN, MIKE ELIZONDO, AND JUSTIN MELDAL-JOHNSEN


Canadian pop-rock icons Tegan and Sara are in the studio recording their as-yet-untitled seventh studio album, the follow-up to their gold certified, critically acclaimed 2009 album Sainthood. The Quin sisters are working with three separate producers on the album: Greg Kurstin (The Shins, Lily Allen, Sia), Mike Elizondo (Regina Spektor, Mastodon, Rilo Kiley), and Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Neon Trees, M83, Moving Units).

âSara and I are trying to step outside of our comfort zones and push ourselves to the extreme with this one so get ready for a whole new T+S sound!â Tegan says. âWe strive to keep things fresh and exciting with each new record and I definitely feel like weâre accomplishing that so far.â

Tegan and Sara have already finished up with Elizondo and are currently working with Kurstin before beginning sessions with Meldal-Johnsen in early May. Fans can keep up with their progress via an online web series âCarpool Confessional,â which captures them in the car as they travel to and from the studio each day. New episodes (which have featured such special guests as fun., Sia, and AFIâs Hunter Burgan) are posted every Tuesday on www.teganandsara.com. Rolling Stone is documenting the action as well, with new photojournals being posted every Wednesday.
