Tegan And Sara Debut 'The Con X: Covers'
Canadian pop duo Tegan and Sara are commemorating the 10th anniversary of their album The Con with a collection of covers of their songs by artists like Ryan Adams, Ruth B and Sara Bareilles.
The Con X: Covers will be released Oct. 20 (a vinyl edition is out Dec. 20).
“As the 10th anniversary of The Con approached, Sara and I started to brainstorm meaningful ways to celebrate what was easily one of our most important records,” explained Tegan, in a release.
“Almost immediately we established that a tour playing all 14 songs in a more intimate and stripped-down arrangement would be memorable for our diehard fans. But we also wanted a companion piece that would live on past the anniversary, hence The Con X: Covers album was born.”
Fans who pre-order the digital album beginning Sept. 19 will receive bonus tracks by Cyndi Lauper, Bleached and Vivek Shraya — as well as one from Tegan and Sara.
A portion of proceeds will be donated by Warner Bros. Records to the Tegan and Sara Foundation.
Other artists interpreting songs from The Con include City and Colour, Hayley Williams of Paramore and CHVRCHES.
Tegan and Sara will kick off The Con X: Tour on Oct. 20 in California. They’ll stop in five Canadian cities before wrapping up the tour Nov. 16 in Austin, Texas.
