Produced by Chris Walla and Howard Redekopp. Mixed by Dave Sardy. Recorded at Sound City (Los Angeles) and Two Sticks (Seattle).

Tegan and Sara's sixth studio album - Sainthood - addresses secular themes of devotion, delusion, and exemplary behavior in the pursuit of love andrelationships. Inspired by emotional longing and the quiet actions wehope may be noticed by the objects of our affection, Sainthood is about obsession with romantic ideals.

In the service of relationships we practice being perfect. We practice our sainthood in the hope that we will be rewarded with adoration.As we are driven to become anything for someone else,we sometimes become martyrs for our cause.

Love, like faith, can never be held in an individual's hands. But the story of a great love affair - especially one that is unrequited or has ended too soon - can be woven like scripture or a bedtime story. And so the themes ofSainthood are tied together by this simple title, borrowed, with great respect, from the lyrics of the Leonard Cohen song "Came So Far For Beauty":

I practiced all my sainthood
I gave to one and all
But the rumours of my virtue
They moved her not at all
