The Smiths have always loomed large in Stars’ constellation of influences, and Stars’ Torquil Campbell and Chris Seligman made that connection plain by performing an acoustic cover of “What Difference Does It Make” during a visit to Philadelphia radio station WXPN to promote new album No One Is Lost. The segment is called Like A Version, which is confusing because Australian station Triple J has been airing a segment by that name for a good solid decade. Anyway, hear Stars’ rendition of the Smiths classic below, followed by an interview with WXPN’s Dan Reed.
In other Stars news, their show Wednesday at First Avenue in Minneapolis will be livestreamed at Yahoo Screen.
No One Is Lost is out now on ATO.
