tegan and sarah closer New Music: Tegan & Sara   Closer

So what songs will Tegan & Sara play on their upcoming tour with The Killers? Here’s one likely candidate, that’s also our first taste of the band’s forthcoming LP. “Closer” is an electro-pop, radio-friendly cut, inspired by a “time before sex, complicated relationships, drama and heart break.”

Tegan explained to Rolling Stone:

I intended was to write something sweet that reminded the listener of a time before sex, complicated relationships, drama and heart break. In short, I was writing about my youth. A time when we got Closer by linking arms and walking down our school hallway or talked all night on the telephone about every thought or experience we’d ever had.

The currently untitled album, produced by Greg Kurstin, is expected to see light in January. Below, you’ll find the band’s entire tour schedule.
