IAN SWEET has released a new EP, STAR STUFF, out today via Polyvinyl. A year after the release of Show Me How You Disappear, STAR STUFF is laid-back and daydreamy, opening with mid-tempo troubled love song "FIGHT" (released as a single in May). Following "FIGHT" is "DIE A MILLION TIMES," which comes with a distorted visualizer that highlights the song's fast-paced synth-pop beat. The title track follows, a saccharine anthem with a hard-hitting chorus: "I'm so sick, sick of never being enough, even when I'm holding your whole world up/I'm so sick, sick of never being enough, when you're the only one made from star stuff." Closing the EP is a fun, dance-pop remix of "FIGHT" by DAGR. Listen to it all below.

IAN SWEET is hitting the road this summer for some US shows with guest Bnny, including a Brooklyn show on July 27 at Baby's All Right. All dates are below.
