Tegan and Sara have announced that they're releasing a new album this September. Titled Hey, I'm Just Like You, the project is comprised entirely of songs the sisters wrote as teenagers. “While working on our memoir, we discovered lost cassette tapes that had been unheard for over 20 years,” Tegan Quin wrote in a statement. “They contained dozens of our first songs, written between the ages of 15 and 17... We immediately recognized the songs as an essential part of our high school story.”

“With only minor tweaks to lyrics and structure, we tried to remain true to the original essence of each song," Sara Quin added. The album, which was recorded with an all-woman team, will arrive just days after the Quin sisters' memoir, High School. The book is out September 24, while the album will follow on September 27 via Sire. Watch a trailer for the LP below.
