Published Mar 26, 2009While Stars haven't released a new album in a few years, the band's front-guy Torquil Campbell has hardly been sitting idle. In fact, in a new MySpace bulletin, Campbell gave a heads-up on a new project he's working on called Dead Child Star. In his words: "It's dreamy and creamy and quite good, like if David Crosby joined Saint Etienne," which basically fits with the more synth-styled, less rock-oriented songs now streaming at Dead Child Star's MySpace page.
Apparently, Campbell has a Dead Child Star album on the way and it's to feature contributions from the project's main collaborator, Julian Harris Brown of Apostle of Hustle, as well as some from Metric's Jimmy Shaw, Andrew Whiteman of Broken Social Scene and Apostle of Hustle and Minotaur Shock. In the bulletin, Campbell also says he's again pairing up with Chris Dumont for another Memphis record, and in April he says he will hook back up with Stars to "begin work on the new record."
As far as any further details go on any of these albums - like release dates, titles, etc. - well, there really aren't any at this point. Just word that Campbell is keeping busy, and to keep an eye out for various new stuff.
In other Stars-related news, Amy Millian is also working on a new solo record, which, as previously reported, should be out sometime later this year.
