It’s been ten years now since Canada’s favourite pair of sisters went and released their phenomenal fifth record, The Con. Now, to celebrate Tegan And Sara’s indie-pop classic, some of music’s biggest names have come together to pay tribute to the record, with a brand new album of covers.
When Tegan And Sara’s The Con was released on July 24th, 2007, few knew just how popular and influential the record would be. With songs such as ‘Back In Your Head’, ‘Nineteen’, and the phenomenal title track, the record quickly became an indie classic, filled with heartfelt tunes that contained some brilliantly-crafted lyrics.
To celebrate the record’s tenth anniversary, an array of some of music’s big names have come together to pay tribute to the record, releasing the appropriately titled, The Con X: Covers.
Featuring acts like PVRIS, Bleachers, CHVRCHES, Ryan Adams, City And Colour, and Paramore’s Hayley Williams covering the record’s biggest hits, it’s a brilliantly suited tribute to one of indie’s most beloved albums.
PVRIS and Hayley Williams both spoke about their contributions to the comp last month when it was revealed they were both going to feature on the tribute.
Been tough keeping this a secret. Proud to be apart of this and covered "Are You Ten Years Ago" ! https://t.co/MnlJRjEx7W
