Stars return with ninth studio album ‘From Capelton Hill’

Montreal’s Stars are back with their ninth studio album, From Capelton Hill, out now via Last Gang Records.

Serving as the follow-up to 2017’s There Is No Love In Fluorescent Light, From Capelton Hill was recorded in the first half of 2020. Thematically, the record is about Stars, a group of people who have spent more than 20 years together who are faced with the question of when all of this will end.

“I guess what From Capelton Hill means to me is from memory, from the past, from a place that seems permanent but isn’t, and I think that sense of impermanence is a big part of what’s in the record: realizing that things don’t last forever, and that even the things that I thought would be there forever aren’t going to be,” Stars’ Torquil Campbell says. “Capelton Hill is a place where things in my mind, in my life, they’ve never changed. And yet it will go.”

“I don’t know what comes after,” Campbell explains. “I just make records about other people and in the end, they turn out to be about me.”

From Capelton Hill features previously released singles “Build A Fire,” “Patterns,” “Pretenders,” “Snowy Owl,” and the album’s bittersweet title track.

Tonight (May 27th), Stars will be playing an intimate release day livestream. Performing from one of their most beloved spaces in North Hatley, Stars will play new songs on Bandcamp LIVE tonight. The show starts at 5:00 p.m. EST, and you can purchase tickets here.
