Following the likes of Katy Perry and Carly Rae Jepsen, indie-pop duo Tegan and Sara have recorded their track “Stop Desire” in Simlish, the native language from EA’s beloved simulation game The Sims.
“It was exciting to imagine singing in a different language,” Tegan Quin told Paste. “We had never done that before. I was very nervous, but I am glad that we saw it through to the end.”
Although it was phonetically spelled out, relearning their song in Simlish posed a challenge for the Grammy-nominated Canadians. “I had a hard time since I know the song so well,” Tegan said. “It was just gibberish to me.”
The duo ultimately overcame these difficulties, crediting the experience as a great opportunity to learn about the popular PC game. The Simlish version of “Stop Desire” coincides with today’s release of The Sim 4’s latest expansion, City Living.
