Tegan and Sara are spending 2017 celebrating the 10th anniversary of their breakthrough album, The Con. Last month, they revealed a fall acoustic trek dubbed The Con X: Tour to commemorate the LP. Today, on the exact day the record turns 10, the twins have announced plans to release a tribute album, The Con X: Covers.

The LP will feature 14 different artists covering each of the album’s tracks, which includes “Back in Your Head”, “Nineteen”, “Call It Off”, and of course the title track. Though a full list of participating musicians is still forthcoming, The Con X: Covers is set to drop October 13th via Warner Bros. Net proceeds from sales of the album will go to The Tegan and Sara Foundation to help support their work with LGBTQ girls and women.

In a statement announcing the effort, Sara wrote,

“When I hear another band or artist cover one of our songs it can be indescribable and pleasantly disorienting – creating hope where there was originally hopelessness or joy where there was only ever regret. A pop song can become a claustrophobic ballad, or an anguished confession might be transformed into a euphoric mantra. In some ways hearing someone else interpret something so familiar is a way to finally be freed from the personal history of the song and to hear it for the first time.”
