Tegan and Sara’s critical fifth album The Con will receive a proper tribute for the tenth anniversary of its release. The track list and cover artists for the album have just been announced for The Con X: Covers, and it’s packed with incredible voices such as Paramore's Hayley Wililams and Ryan Adams.
The Con X: Covers will continue the duo’s constant work for the LGBTQ community, with all net album proceeds going to the Tegan and Sara Foundation, an organization which “fights for health, economic justice, and representation for LGBTQ girls and women.” Tegan and Sara took their mission one step further when selecting the right voices for the album.
“With that intention set, 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," Tegan said in a statement. "All the artists agreed to donate their time and energy to the project and their labels all agreed to waive their fees as well.”
