Tegan and Sara have shared a fourth single from their upcoming 10th album Crybaby titled "I Can't Grow Up".

"I Can't Grow Up" will appear on Crybaby with earlier cuts "Faded Like A Feeling", "Yellow" and "Fucking Up What Matters", and is teamed with another Mark Myers-directed video.

Stereogum reports that Sara Quin explained the song is "musically inspired by Chicago band Dehd and their album Flower Of Devotion. 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."

Crybaby will follow Tegan and Sara's 2019 album Hey, I'm Just Like You. It was recorded at Seattle's Studio Litho and LA's Sargent Recorders, and was produced by Tegan and Sara with John Congleton.

"I Can't Grow Up" is out now. Tegan and Sara will release their Crybaby album on 21 October via Mom+Pop Music, and it's available to pre-order now.
