Canadian indie legends Stars, by way of Toronto and Montreal, have been a staple of the scene for nearly twenty years. Today, they have dropped two new songs entitled “Privilege”, taken from the beautiful, reflective standpoint of Amy Millan, and “We Called It Love” which comes from Torquil Campbell’s contemplative and frank point of view. Read the band’s statement below.

Hello. we’re back. we have a new album. it was recorded in Montreal and Connecticut with the great producer Peter Katis. We love him and thank him for being there for us.
