Tegan And Sara have shared the third song from their upcoming album, Hey, I’m Just Like You.
Sara Quin said that the song, “Don’t Believe The Things They Tell You (They Lie),” is more of a self-condemnation on the part of young Tegan and Sara.
She explained about the song’s origin in a statement, saying, “Our mother tells a story about watching the 1980s television show Punky Brewster with us when we were four years old. The episode’s morality tale focused on lying, and near the end of the show, she describes one of us climbing onto her back, sobbing into her neck and confessing a lie we’d told her earlier in the day. At 15, we started telling lies again, and we absolved ourselves constantly in the lyrics of our songs.”
The song was originally written when the duo were teenagers.
The first two songs of the album – the title track and “I’ll Be Back Someday” – were already released.
Hey, I’m Just Like You is scheduled for release on September 27, three days after the planned publishing of Tegan And Sara’s memoir, titled “High School.”
