Moon Duo Announce New Album <i>Stars Are the Light</i>, Share Title Track

Portland psych-rockers Moon Duo announced a new album, Stars Are The Light, and shared its title track on Tuesday morning.

“Stars Are The Light” is an alien disco groove filled with gossamer synth tones and left-field strings peppered throughout. The duo, made up of Sanae Yamada and Wooden Shjips’ Ripley Johnson, harmonize in delicately processed vocals that add to the track’s ethereal quality. “I don’t want to stay here and fight / If I want to bring you love,” they croon tenderly.

Moon Duo describe Stars Are The Light as a collection of songs “about embodied human experience … rendered as a kind of dance of the self, both in relation to other selves and to the eternal dance of the cosmos” in a statement. They promise it’ll be filled with languid grooves and dreamy vocals, setting the stage for an internal exploration.

Stars Are The Light is due out Sept. 27 on Sacred Bones. Listen to the title track below, then keep scrolling to find the album’s details and the duo’s upcoming tour dates.
