The Weepies Stream New Album

the weepies 2

Beloved indie-folk duo The Weepies, comprised of husband and wife Deb Talan and Steven Tannen, are back, and streaming their brand new album, Sirens, on Pandora. The album is their first full-length release in five years, and will drop on April 28th.

Tannen recently told Billboard about the pair’s “helluva a year,” which included Talan’s breast cancer diagnosis. “[…] Frightening dire diagnoses, hospitals, and helping angels everywhere, but it seemed like maybe this was also the end of everything — like the journey was over,” he said.

“Sirens were mermaids that led sailors to their doom with their sweet voices. It’s also a reference to an ambulance siren, and together they summed up the feeling of the year: otherworldly, hopeful, terrible,” Tannen explained.

Listen to the title track below. You can pre-order the album HERE.
