Hot on the heels of my post about Stars’ new tour dates and mention of upcoming single, “Fixed”, comes…”Fixed”. This is the first track available off Stars’ forthcoming fifth LP, The Five Ghosts, and thank god it’s Amy Millan taking the reigns. Because she’s pretty much one of the best female vocalists out there and frequently outshines Torquil Campbell. (That said, Campbell has a great, complementary voice, but Millan is one of a kind). The song is heavily electro-based with some psychedelia and upbeat throughout. I couldn’t be happier with this first hint at the direction of the new album.
