Tegan and Sara have shared another new track from their forthcoming 10th studio album, Crybaby, due Oct. 21 via Mom+Pop Music. “I Can’t Grow Up” is a self-described “snotty nosed pop song about not being able to grow out of bad habits in relationships.” The official video, directed by Mark Myers, matches the song’s playfulness and the duo’s charisma.

The new song “was musically inspired by Chicago band Dehd and their album Flower of Devotion,” according to Sara Quin. “The song started on bass, an instrument I’d never written with until Crybaby, and I was channeling a little bit of Emily Kempf from Dehd, and Peter Hook from New Order. My partner had traveled back to the U.S., after a year of being stuck in Canada during the pandemic, and I was enjoying late nights alone writing music and singing full tilt in the basement.”.
