Tegan and Sara Announce CD and Vinyl Versions of Reimagined Album STILL JEALOUS

Monday, May 9, 2022

Earlier this year, Tegan and Sara announced the digital release of Still Jealous, the indie-pop duo’s reimagined version of their breakout album, So Jealous. It features the original’s 14 tracks, all of which have been re-recorded acoustically, with the twin sisters singing each other’s songs. On June 24, STILL JEALOUS will be available for the first time as a CD ($14.98) and as 1-LP black vinyl ($24.98). Fans are invited to pre-order the album by going here.

The original album, So Jealous, came out in September 2004 and was the Quin sister’s fourth studio release. The record was certified gold in their native Canada, where it was also nominated for a Juno Award for Alternative Album of the Year. In addition, Rolling Stone ranked So Jealous in its list of Top 50 Records of 2004.

The idea to record the new album came in the spring of 2020 as they were preparing to launch a fundraiser for the Tegan and Sara Foundation, where the grand prize was two guitars used to record So Jealous. To promote the campaign, Sara decided to record an acoustic version of “You Wouldn’t Like Me,” one of the songs Tegan wrote for the album.
On STILL JEALOUS, Tegan and Sara reimagine the original album by stripping back some of the sonic layers that gave So Jealous its distinctive sound, a move that underscores the strong songwriting and the emotions at the core of each song. Highlights from the new album include Sara’s “covers” of “Speak Slow” and “Where Does The Good Go” and Tegan’s reinterpretations of “I Bet It Stung” and “Walking With A Ghost,” a song The White Stripes covered in 2005 on the group’s EP, Walking With A Ghost.
The band has also recently released a new single “Fucking Up What Matters” along with a new video via Mom + Pop Music, which can be found by going here.
