To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Tegan and Sara’s album, THE CON, Warner Bros. Records will release THE CON X: COVERS on October 20.
The new album features 14 artists including Ryan Adams, City and Colour, Bleachers and Hayley Williams of Paramore, each interpreting a song from the original album.
Warner Bros. Records will donate net album proceeds to the Tegan and Sara Foundation, which raises money for self-identified women and girls in the LGBTQ community. A portion of the proceeds from Tegan and Sara’s upcoming tour will also benefit the foundation.
Tegan says, “As the 10th anniversary of The Con approached, Sara and I started to brainstorm meaningful ways to celebrate what was easily one of our most important records. Almost immediately we established that a tour playing all 14 songs in a more intimate and stripped-down arrangement would be memorable for our diehard fans. But we also wanted a companion piece that would live on past the anniversary, hence The Con X: Covers album was born. . . We asked 14 artists who were either outspoken allies of the LGTBQ community or LGBTQ themselves to each cover a song from The Con, in any fashion they saw fit. . . We are beyond grateful for the contributions of each artist, and we hope fans of The Con will be moved by their interpretations.”
