NEWS: Stars release holiday single ‘Christmas Anyway’ and announce UK and Ireland tour for February 2023

What’s Christmas without a brand new, whimsical, jingle-bell-laden track to unwrap? Especially one that nods to the fact that for many of us, Christmas never comes without its challenges. This year Montreal’s indie-pop ensemble Stars have got us covered with ‘Christmas Anyway’ .

The band offers these sentiments about the song: “In a world where the algorithm (and other horrible things) has made us all feel further apart, going home for the holidays isn’t easy for everyone. What is it about these days that makes us feel we have to go home to face the loved ones we simply cannot ever be at peace with? We have no idea, but we do know that sometimes a simple song can get you through at least a few minutes of holiday hell. We hope this one does that for you. We love you all. Merry Christmas.” -xo stars.

Stars are also embarking on a European tour in the new year – hitting the UK and Ireland in February. You can buy tickets here.
