Canadian synthpop group Stars — Amy Millan, Evan Cranley, Patrick McGee, Chris Seligman and Torquil Campbell, with Chris McCarron — will release their seventh studio album, No One Is Lost, on October 14th via ATO records. For the new album, Stars inherited the Mile End rehearsal space last December above the now defunct, Royal Phoenix nightclub in Montreal. The album was co-produced by the band and producer Liam O’Neil, who is known for his work with Metric and The Stills.
“This record’s called ‘No One Is Lost’ because that is a fucking lie,” says lead singer/songwriter Torquil Campbell. “We are all lost, we are all going to lose this game and, as you get older, you lose people more and more. I just wanted to close my eyes and jump and hope that was true. Life is loss, love is loss. And loving people is about accepting that you’re going to have to say goodbye to them. And that’s why it’s fucking brave. That’s STARS ethos: this life is very heartbreaking and sad… so let’s get completely fucking arseholed and listen to some Dionne Warwick.”
Ahead of the release of No One Is Lost, Stars has released the new single “From The Night”. Speaking about the track, Cambell says, “‘From The Night’ revels in the chances you take and the loves you make or break on any given evening. I always find it so moving and beautiful to watch people have their nights out. There’s something so heartbreaking about it. People have jobs that they have to get up for, jobs they hate, and they live for the weekend; they live for these moments. And they put everything they have into it.”
