Tegan and Sara's upcoming projects are all about nostalgia. The Canadian duo's upcoming album, Hey, I'm Just Like You (out Sept. 27), comprises songs they wrote in high school that have been re-recorded. It's a concept that works in conjunction with their new memoir titled High School, which comes out on Sept. 24, and looks at the origin story of the Quin sisters. 

Today, they have released its first single, "I'll be Back Someday," which you can hear below. Channeling the band's earlier guitar-driven sound, "I'll be Back Someday" combines Tegan and Sara's pop-rock melodies with the polished production of their more recent synth-pop albums.
