Published Feb 18, 2016Stars have returned with the second entry in their ongoing, year-long covers project. Considering the world went Kanye-crazy since the band dropped their Dylan cover in January, they've opted to toast Ye with a take on his "Street Lights."
Here dubbed "Streetlights," Stars' version of the 808s & Heartbreak ballad first rolls out a tender, melodic and organic piano melody, in place of the original's speaker-fried synth tones. Torquil Campbell's lead vocals land just as soft, with the singer comfortably sliding into Kanye's pensive cab ride narrative.
The cover eventually ups the ante with the sonics, and you can find out how via the player below.
