Moon Duo announce new LP “Stars Are The Light”, hear title track!

Today, Moon Duo have announced details of a new album Stars Are The Light, set for release on September 27th via Sacred Bones. The album’s title track is streaming below and the band have also announced North American & European touring plans for this Autumn.

The band’s Sanae Yamada comments about the new album: “We have changed, the nature of our collaboration has changed, the world has changed, and we wanted the new music to reflect that.”

With Sonic Boom (Spacemen 3, Spectrum) at the mixing desk in Portugal’s Serra de Sintra, the area’s lush landscape and powerful lunar energies exerted a strong influence on the vibe and sonic texture of the album.

On embracing disco as an inspiration, Yamada says, “It’s something we hadn’t referenced in our music before, but its core concepts really align with what we were circling around as we made the album. Disco is dance music, first and foremost, and we were digging our way into the idea of this endless dance of bodies in nature. We were also very inspired by the space and community of a disco – a space of free self-expression through dance, fashion, and mode of being; where everyone was welcome, diversity was celebrated, and identity could be fluid; where the life force that animates each of us differently could flower.”
