Stars Cover Beyoncé’s ‘Hold Up’ And Announce Summer Tour

Hot off their WayHome performance this past weekend, Canadian five-piece Stars have shared the latest instalment in their 2016 cover series with Beyoncé’s “Hold Up” and have also announced a summer tour.

The band chose to cover the Beyoncé track from her Emmy-nominated album, Lemonade, simply because they—like the rest of the world—love the song.

“She’s the queen of pop and we’re not,” Stars said in a press release. “Because it’s, very oddly, right in Torq’s singing range. We don’t know. We don’t know anything anymore…At least there’s this: A song about love. It’s all we’ve ever had. It is all we will ever have. And we are fools to have counted on anything else.”

“Hold Up” is a part of their 2016 monthly cover series, which has them releasing a new cover track every month this year. Past covers include Mike Posner’s “I Took a Pill in Ibiza” and Bob Dylan’s “It Ain’t Me Babe.”

The band is currently in the studio working on a new album. The project will be their eighth record, following 2014’s No One Is Lost. They’ll be playing a few summer shows, with band members Amy Millan and Evan Cranley also appearing with Broken Social Scene on their tour. See the tour dates below.
