Montreal indie-pop group Stars have shared a new single, “Capelton Hill.” It is the latest release from the group’s forthcoming album, From Capelton Hill, which will be out on May 27 via Last Gang/MNRK. Listen below.

In a press release, band member Torquill Campbell states: This song sounds like an ending. And maybe it is. It’s certainly a moment of looking back; at what we’ve done together, and what we’ve lost along the way. It focuses on this band’s enduring obsession: loss. The cost of loving somewhere or someone is the fact that you lose them. The last two years have taught us all a lot about loss: loss of loved ones, of time, of memories, of simple pleasures. That loss hurts. We’re all hurt, and there is no way around it; you can only go through it. Whether you’re 10 or 50, things change. But on Capelton Hill, maybe things can stay the same. For just one more year.”

Upon announcement of the new album in February, Stars shared the songs “Pretenders” and “Snowy Owl.” They later shared the singles “Build a Fire” and “Patterns.”

The band’s most recent album, There Is No Love In Fluorescent Light, came out in 2017.

LYRICS:
Close up the house for one more year
Every single leaf has turned to red
The frost is settling on all the roofs around here
Do you remember what you said
200 days ago when everything was lost
And everybody closed the door?
You looked at me under the lightning tree and told me
"What has all of this been for?"
Wandered far up on Capelton Hill
Fell in the ditch when we stopped for that kiss
Rolled into years that we'd mark on the floor
I forgot that we always want more
Don’t we?
I told you we were here to fight
I told you we were here to sing
I told you we were here to keep each other company
And that it's meant everything
A million miles in our sleep
A million streets lost in the past
There's only memories left to keep now love
And even they are running fast
Wandered far up on Capelton Hill
Fell in the ditch when we stopped for that kiss
Rolled into years that we'd mark on the floor
I forgot that we always want more
I said take me to bed with some hope
Kick up the choir just to keep us afloat
When we tip we can swim through the dark
Dream up the miles that we clocked from the start
Hand to heart
Sweeping up the ashes of the fire
From when we set ourselves alight
A sea of faces singing all our songs to us and
A different city every night
Close up the house for one more year
Wave to the lake and drive away
That feeling in your chest it isn't fear
It's just the passing of the day
Wandered far up on Capelton Hill
Fell in the ditch when we stopped for that kiss
Rolled into years that we'd mark on the floor
I forgot that we always want more
You said let’s pack the kids and get out
Trade in the city for clouds in the south
Mirrors reflect what's been left in the past
The end never ends it just might not last
But it's a start
Hand to heart
