Last.fm Trends: Tegan And Sara Get Stripped Back
The graph above (click to enlarge) shows weekly listeners for the duo since the release of last studio album Sainthood in 2009, levelling out at around 18,000 listeners per week since the summer. That’s 12,000 less than their peak, but it’s clear there’s a core of fans gained over their sixteen-year career who listen week in and out.
The compilation contains three of their top five tracks on Last.fm, however: “Nineteen,” “Call It Off” and “Back In Your Head” all originating from 2007’s The Con. Fans may wish to revisit those tracks, but it seems likely that a new release is needed to really push listener numbers back up.
