“Hold On When You Get Love And Let Go When You Give It”

    Canadian indie pop outfit Stars have revealed the second new track from their upcoming record The North, due out September 4 via ATO. The unwieldily-titled “Hold On When You Get Love And Let Go When You Give It” runs along an anthemic beat, suggesting perhaps that the band has had M83’s latest record in heavy rotation. 

    Stars have an extensive North American tour planned for the fall. Diamond Rings will be joining them for the U.S. leg, while Metric will tag along on their course through Canada. Tickets to most shows come with a free download of the new record. Check out the dates below:
