Sixx: A.M. Reveal New Song ‘Stars’
After teasing fans earlier in the week, Sixx: A.M. have now revealed the full audio for the new song ‘Stars’ from their upcoming ‘Modern Vintage’ album, and the track definitely lives up to the praise provided by frontman James Michael.
The vocalist said in a recent teaser trailer, “As far as a quintessential Sixx: A.M. song, I think that ‘Stars’ might be one of the best songs we’ve ever written.” He also called it one of the band’s most aggressive songs that gives him goosebumps every time he hears it.
It’s easy to see why Michael would feel that way as he definitely delivers in the chorus, with “Do you wanna see heaven tonight / Underneath those lights / It would look so beautiful / Do you wanna see the stars before they fall, see the stars before they fall.”
The track also features some blistering guitar work from DJ Ashba and some gritty bass courtesy of Nikki Sixx. It starts off with a slow build, but doesn’t take long for the aggression to kick in. “It’s one of those moments you always hope for as a songwriter where the melody line and the lyric and the track all marry perfectly,” says Michael.
Check out the song in the player above and watch Michael talking about the track in the video teaser below. Sixx: A.M.’s ‘Modern Vintage’ album is due on Oct. 7 through Eleven Seven Music.
