Sixx: A.M. Now Streaming ‘Stars’ in Its Entirety
With its futuristic opening riff, ‘Stars’ sounds at first like music from another dimension — until the crunchy chorus, which circles back around to this group’s historical influences as members of Motley Crue and Guns N’ Roses.
That’s perfectly in keeping with Sixx: A.M.’s concept for the new project, due in October. “There are moments on the record that literally sound they were written and recorded in, say, the late-’60s, early ’70s — and then there’s moments in the record that sound like they were recorded in a time that hasn’t even happened yet,” singer James Michael said in pre-release material. “So, sonically speaking, it’s a real journey — and I think that the title ‘Modern Vintage’ really describes that.”
