They taught us that “Everything is Awesome” on The LEGO Movie soundtrack. But Tegan and Sara have more serious things on their minds on the new song they recorded for the trailer to the comedy-drama The Intervention. The movie written, directed and co-starring actress Clea DuVall, Cobie Smulders, Alia Shawkat and Jason Ritter is due out on Aug. 26.
The cheery electro acoustic track features the sisters singing “every single word, every single word’s another lie/ You were waiting, waiting on our goodbye/ Waiting on a fadeout.” The song is situationally appropriate, since the movie deals with a group of friends who gather at a country home for a planned marriage intervention for a couple who seem perpetually miserable. Band member Sara Quin wrote the soundtrack for the film.
Listen for the song in the second half of the trailer:
