Tegan and Sara released a new album, Love You to Death, back in June via Warner Bros. and have been releasing a slew of videos for its songs, but now we have a video for a brand new song not featured on that album. “Fade Out” is taken from the soundtrack to the new indie film The Intervention, which is out this Friday, and features a score by the Sara Quin half of Tegan and Sara. The video features behind-the-scene clips from the making of the movie. Actress/filmmaker Clea DuVall directed The Intervention, which stars DuVall, Natasha Lyonne, Cobie Smulders, Jason Ritter, Alia Shawkat, Ben Schwartz, Vincent Piazza, and Melanie Lynskey. The film is DuVall’s feature director debut and is described as such: “Four couples go on a weekend getaway, which takes a sharp turn when one of the couples discovers the trip is an intervention on their marriage.” Watch the video below, via Rolling Stone (who premiered it).

Sara discussed the song with Rolling Stone: “I played a rough idea of it for Clea and she really liked it. So I tried to imagine Melanie Lynskey’s character and the misguided attempt to fix other people’s lives when she herself was headed for a fadeout in her own relationship and rewrote the lyrics.”

DuVall also commented on the song: “‘Fade Out’ captures the emotional complexity of the film. I love the duality of the dreamy melody with the somewhat bittersweet lyrics. When Sara first played me the finished song, all of my anxiety disappeared. The more I hear it, the more I fall in love with it.”
