Tegan and Sara have released their new single "Fucking Up What Matters", which is their first outing since signing to Mom+Pop Music.

"Fucking Up What Matters" follows Tegan and Sara's updated version of "Where Does the Good Go" that landed in February, and is accompanied by a Tony Wolski-directed video that also stars TikTok twins Railey and Seazynn Gilliland, who will play Tegan and Sara in the upcoming High School series.

Tegan Quin said of the new single, which is co-produced by John Congleton, ""Fucking Up What Matters" felt like an ode to the moment in your life when you realize that you have most, if not all of the things you wanted and you start to think about what would happen if you just walked away from it all. It’s the moment in the middle of the night when you start to daydream about something else, something you never imagined."

"It’s the feeling you have when you think you might have hit a new low, and yet you’ve never felt so good," Tegan Quin added. "Sometimes it’s admitting that you can’t stop yourself from fucking up what matters, that you feel your strongest. And as my mom would say, it’s often when we’re fucking up what matters, that we’re learning the most about ourselves."

The twins said of their signing to Mom+Pop Music, "Michael Goldstone signed us to Sire/Warner in 2006. We had just made The Con and felt like the vision Goldie and the team at Sire had for us and the album were a good fit. But soon after he signed us, he left to start Mom+Pop. We never held it against him. But joked that one day we’d work together for real. So it was with great enthusiasm that we agreed to sign to Mom+Pop when our deal with Warner ended in 2021. We look forward to being back at an indie label, on a brilliant roster, with Goldie and the label’s incredible team helping us start this next chapter in our lives with the release of our tenth album."

They're yet to follow up 2019's Hey, I'm Just Like You album.

In December last year, Tegan and Sara revealed their 10th album had been mixed, with just a "few tweaks still to make."

Tegan and Sara's "Fucking Up What Matters" single is out now on Mom+Pop Music.
