The word 'tween' implies a certain, very specific kind of awkwardness, and those implications are rarely positive. But think about it like this: Something 'tween' is in the process of becoming something else, and there’s a very specific kind of beauty in that becoming. There’s something rewarding in recognizing and celebrating it—in meeting it halfway. Tween is a collection of eight songs born, raised, and almost abandoned for various reasons during the years between 2011’s breakthrough Civilian and 2014’s reinvention-of-sorts, Shriek. JENN WASNER and ANDY STACK described these songs as 'not emblematic of a step forward, but a step sideways in time.' In other words, they just didn’t make sense for album number five—which will happen at some point in the future. But just because they didn’t belong there doesn’t mean they don’t belong anywhere. To wedge them onto Shriek would’ve been dishonest; to orphan them would’ve been somewhere on the line between criminal and just plain silly."—Josh Modell
