“Starfire was written and produced over a three year period, like the rest of the album, in Los Angeles, New York and Oslo,” [Jaga Jazzist] member and songwriter Lars Horntveth told the FADER via email. “This puzzle of a song was recorded in various studios and apartments and finally came together when I spliced two songs together. The two songs were very different, but somehow it made perfect sense for me. Starfire is a good introduction to how the rest of the album sounds. More synthetic, but also more organic and analogue than our previous albums.” Starfire is out June 2nd via Ninja Tune.” — via The Fader
