All of the covers on Tegan and Sara’s new album are amazing. Plus, The Con X: Covers, a celebration of the Canadian twins’ beloved 2007 album The Con, features an endless array of star talent we adore. Let’s take our time to dive into this beautiful cover of Dark Come Soon by who else, but our favorite Canadian pop artist Grimes and her friend and fellow edgy pop talent, HANA. Dark Come Soon gets a wispy fragile, dark emotive metamorphosis on the lissome haunting cover. The Con X: Covers is available, here, and it also features tracks by MUNA, Shura, Mykki Blanco, PVRIS, Ryan Adams, Bleachers, CHVRCHES, and many, many more. All proceeds from The Con X: Covers benefit The Tegan and Sara Foundation, which fights for health, economic justice, and representation for LGBTQ girls and women.

There’s no denying the fact that Canadian twins Tegan and Sara have had a huge effect on many of our favorite artists today. To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of their quintessential album The Con, they’ll be dropping a release named The Con X: Covers featuring a long list of incredible artists covering its songs. Scottish electropop outfit CHVRCHES contributed a beautiful rendition of Call It Off, and the track has surfaced today. Their Call It Off drifts dreamily, offering us a rare glimpse of a more floaty, airy CHVRCHES. You can pre-order The Con X: Covers, here. All proceeds from the album will benefit the Tegan and Sara Foundation, which fights for economic justice, health, and representation for LGBTQ girls & women. The Con X: Covers will also feature covers by the likes of MUNA, Shura, PVRIS, Ryan Adams, Bleachers, and many, many more. It arrives on October 20th.
