Stars just released “Alone,” the latest single from their forthcoming release There Is No Love In Fluorescent Light, available October 13th, via Last Gang Records / eOne.
Stars’ Torquil Campbell on the track:
“Of all the songs I wish I had written, “Waterloo Sunset” is the one I wish I had written most. But I didn’t. I wrote this instead. And when I say I, I mean the whole band. All six of us. Still making music together – music about people who feel alone. There must be a lesson in that somewhere. If you find it, please don’t get in touch.”
Stars will play select live dates in November, including shows at Brooklyn’s Rough Trade and Toronto’s The Great Hall. Stars have partnered with Plus 1 and Native Women’s Shelter of Montreal/Foyer Pour Femmes so that $1 from every ticket goes towards providing indigenous women and their children a safe and supportive environment through the Native Women’s Shelter of Montreal. For more information and ticket details visit Stars’ website.
The album was recorded in Montreal and Connecticut with producer Peter Katis (The National, Japandroids, Jonsi), There Is No Love In Fluorescent Light marks the first time the band relinquished creative control to another, outside the band.
Peter Katis on working with Stars:
“Stars is a complex organism with a long history,” says Katis. He adds, “They are a combination of personalities simultaneously in conflict and harmony, ultimately coming together to make a really cool record. It feels fresh and new to me. I’m really proud of what we did. Bon travail a tous!”
