“Fluorescent Light” was released over the weekend, marking the third new single from Stars this year, as well as the confirmation that the band’s new album There Is No Love In Fluorescent Light will be released in October via Last Gang Records / eOne.
“Does no one fall in love under fluorescent light?,” asks Stars. “Pretty sure that’s not true, as many an office romance could attest. But as a statement in support of love’s delusions, we will stand by it. In love, the lights are different, softer; the air has more oxygen in it; and for a second, all you need is a good chorus to believe this might be the one. It’s a Stars song, but with Peter Katis producing it. So, it’s spaghetti with tomato sauce, but Mario Batali cooked it. So, eat it.”
The new single also arrived with a new trailer for the documentary Dinner with Stars, which was shot in Toronto by Anthony Seck.
“It’s us having dinner, and telling stories and eventually getting a little wasted. There’s a baby in it too. He’s fantastic in it. In an age where you have to call an album a playlist and a video an event, this is just another one of our little films we make that let you know you’re not alone, you’re only as good as your best story, and it helps if there’s music. Enjoy.”
