While the track was written by Tegan, “Smoking Weed Alone” showcases the band’s approach to the album.
“With this album, I wanted there to be a dialogue that we could have about the songs,” says Sara. “Some of Tegan’s songs became almost like duets, because she allowed me to go in there and challenge her to rewrite lyrics. I wanted a narrative that could tie into our relationship and some of the things that were happening in our life, even if the song wasn’t about that. And for ‘Smoking Weed Alone,’ there’s a chorus where we’re sort of singing to each other, and we haven’t done that before, in our career.”
“Smoking Weed Alone” follows previously released tracks “I Can’t Grow Up” “Faded Like a Feeling,” “Fucking Up What Matters” and the sweet, anthemic “Yellow.” Listen to all below.
New York Times, Pitchfork, Entertainment Weekly, The Daily Beast and Vulture, all named Crybaby one of the albums they are most excited about for this fall.
