Nada Surf recently unveiled the track "When I was Young" as a first glimpse of the forthcoming album, The Stars Are Indifferent To Astronomy.

Stars is Nada Surf's seventh record, and fourth for Seattle indie Barsuk. The album is meant to capture the band's live vibe. "We've always played faster and a little harder live," says vocalist/guitarist Matthew Caws. "But we'd play so carefully in the studio. So with this album, we made a conscious decision to preserve what it felt like in the practice room, when you play with that new-song energy.
Nada Surf's lineup for 15 years has been and still is Matthew Caws (vocals, guitar), Daniel Lorca (bass) and Ira Elliot (drums), though this time, as if I had a hifi and the tour that followed, they invited guitarist Doug Gillard (Guided by Voices, Death of Samantha) to join in the proceedings. Chris Shaw (Wilco, Brendan Benson, Elvis Perkins in Dearland and Super Furry Animals) was brought in to produce and record.
