Canadian pop-rock icons Tegan and Sara have announced that they will hit the road with The Black Keys for the extension of their U.S. Tour later this year. Additionally, the girls are confirmed to play Austin City Limits this October. The official ACL lineup was announced today and can be seen in full on the festival’s website.
Over the last couple months, Tegan & Sara have been hard at work recording their new album. The Quin sisters have been in the studio with Greg Kurstin (The Shins, Lily Allen, Sia), Mike Elizondo (Regina Spektor, Mastodon, Rilo Kiley), and Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Neon Trees, M83, Moving Units). They’ve offered up fans an inside look at the process of recording too through Tegan and Sara’s Carpool Confessional, a weekly video show filmed from the back of their car and featuring a wide variety of special guests and musical collaborators. Additionally, Rolling Stone rolled out weekly behind the scenes photo updates from the studio, all captured by Lindsey Byrnes.
Tegan and Sara lend vocals to two tracks on Grammy-nominated Morgan Page’s new album In The Air, including the single, “Body Work,” which they also star in the video for. Having remixed numerous cuts for the indie stalwarts, the three wanted to write something together from scratch. “Body Work” is a stellar example of Page’s skills as a producer and as an artist: brilliantly balancing kinetic house music with blissful pop.
