Upon its release, Tegan & Sara's Heartthrob sailed to the number three on the Billboard Top 200 albums chart—garnering praise from both critics (important) and fans (more important) alike.

There's much more to Heartthrob's 10 tracks than just what you hear though, which is why we're excited to give you an inside glimpse at the meaning behind two tracks—"I Couldn't Be Your Friend" and "Love They Say"—with this exclusive track-by-track video commentary. 

In the first video, the pair stir up bitter memories of a break-up riddled with lies and deception, admitting that the inspiration behind "I Couldn't Be Your Friend" holds true to its title and may just be the next best way to break up with someone.

On the other side of the spectrum, the following video picks apart "Love They Say," which was built on themes Tegan Quin drew from her research of the top 100 love songs of all time. The duo also unveil special instructions for getting the most out of the track while you spin it: "When you listen to 'Love They Say,' please watch 2001: A Space Odyssey with the sound off."

Check out both videos below, and should you still be without a copy of Heartthrob, grab it here!
