Tegan And Sara’s HIJLY tour announcement:

This tour is going to be like nothing we have ever done. We’ll be solo (can we still call it “solo” if there are two of us?). We’ll be playing acoustic (mostly). We’ll be reading from our memoir High School, and performing songs from the new album Hey, I’m Just Like You. And we’ll be playing a collection of songs from our older records (don’t worry!). We’ve pulled our favorite moments from all the old video footage from our teenage years we discovered last year, and we will be screening clips throughout the evening. We have so much in store for you. It’s going to be a super special evening that you don’t want to miss. We’ve been away from you all for nearly two years and can’t wait to see you.


Closer lyrics

All I want to get is a little bit closer
All I want to know is
Can you come a little closer?
Here comes the breath before we get
A little bit closer
Here comes the rush before we touch
Come a little closer

The doors are open, the wind is really blowing
The night sky is changing overhead

It’s not just all physical
I’m the type who won’t get oh so critical
So let’s make things physical
I won’t treat you like you’re oh so typical
I won’t treat you like you’re oh so typical

All you think of lately is getting underneath me
All I dream of lately is how to get you underneath me
Here comes the heat before we meet
A little bit closer
Here comes the spark before the dark
Come a little closer

The lights are off and the sun is finally setting
The night sky is changing overhead

Tegan & Sara official bio:

While writing High School, Tegan and Sara discovered two cassette tapes with dozens of the first songs they ever wrote between the ages of 15 and 17 – tapes that had been unheard for twenty years. Defiant and melodramatic, the melodies and lyrics on these rough tapes captured the exultation and grief of first loves, first losses, ecstatic kiss-offs, and psychedelic tributes to friendship. Hey, I’m Just Like You is made up entirely of new studio recordings of those early songs, recasting Tegan and Sara’s remarkable innate songwriting talents as teenagers, and allowing these previously unreleased songs to benefit from the studio expertise they have gained in the past two decades as professional musicians.

“This is a record we never could have made as teenagers, full of songs we never could have written as adults,” says Tegan. Adds Sara, “With only minor tweaks to lyrics and structure, we tried to remain true to the original essence of each song.”

During the course of their twenty-year career, Tegan and Sara Quin have sold well over one million records and released eight studio albums. Tegan And Sara have have received three Juno Awards, a Grammy nomination, and a Governor General’s Performing Arts Award (Canada’s highest national honor in the arts). They have performed on some of the world’s biggest stages, from Coachella to the Academy Awards. In 2016 they created the Tegan and Sara Foundation, which fights for health, economic justice, and representation for LGBTQ+ girls and women. The sisters currently reside in Vancouver, British Columbia, and split their time between there and Los Angeles, California.
