LISTEN: Stars Announce New “Backlines” Remix And North American Tour Dates In Spring

We've been a bit Stars-struck since August, upon hearing that the Montreal rockers had plans to release The North. Since then, we've heard several versions of track two, "Backlines," and today is no different. 

Below is the latest version, which is a remix by Eight and a Half: members of Broken Social Scene and The Stills. With the exception of the catchy chorus, this upbeat, heavily synthesized remix transforms Amy Millan's pretty and poised songbird vocals into a sexy, raspy robot—a very inventive and refreshing take on the original song which we already can't get enough of. 

After you're done listening, take a look at the tour dates section. Once Stars has taken Europe, Australia, and Asia by storm, they head to North America on March 5 for a generous spring tour. To purchase tickets, head over to Stars' official website
