MUSIC NEWS - Canadian pop-rock icons Tegan and Sara are back in the studio, this time recording their as-yet-untitled seventh studio album. The set will be the follow-up to their 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).
"Sara 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!" Tegan said recently. "We strive to keep things fresh and exciting with each new record and I definitely feel like we're accomplishing that so far."
Tegan and Sara have already finished up with Elizondo and are currently working with Kurstin before starting sessions with Meldal-Johnsen in early May. You can keep up with their progress via an online web series "Carpool Confessional," 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 AFI's Hunter Burgan) are posted every Tuesday at teganandsara.com.
