Been Stellar have shared their affectionate new single ‘Pumpkin’ and announced a 2024 UK and European headline tour.

The fourth and final single to be released prior to the release of the band’s debut album ‘Scream From New York, NY’ is an intimate and soft track inspired by a visual the band’s frontman Sam Slocum had.

“This song is somewhat of a sonic departure for us — it’s definitely more subdued,” said Slocum in a press release. “There was a point when we weren’t totally sure it would make it onto the album because of that. It had existed in many forms, but it wasn’t until the last month leading up to recording when each part fell into place.

“Oddly, the lyrics remained the same from the very beginning. They stemmed from a visual I had: an apartment light shining through its windows out onto a street at night. I imagined the people inside the apartment crossing back and forth in front of the window. From there, the lyrics I wrote formed a vignette of the people in the apartment, sharing a space together. I described several shared, intimate moments from my own life— I wanted to get as specific as I could.”

Directed by Been Stellar themselves, ‘Pumpkin’s accompanying music video sees an elderly couple in their apartment eating dinner and then sitting down to watch television. The television then shows video footage of the band and their friends on the streets of the Lower East Side in New York City.

‘Pumpkin’ follows the previously released singles ‘Sweet‘, ‘All In One‘ and ‘Passing Judgement‘. ‘Scream from New York, NY’ is set for release on June 21 via Dirty Hit. Visit here to pre-order.

Speaking to NME for the Cover back in March, Been Stellar shared the meanings behind their upcoming debut, as well as the artists that influenced them.

“Your influences are in your DNA. You shouldn’t be thinking about it, it’s going to be there regardless,” said Slocum.

“The main thing for us is to write stuff that we would genuinely want to listen to. It is very easy to fall into those influences, which is not necessarily a bad thing but we just try to block all of that noise out and ask ourselves ‘What would we want to be listening to?’” continued bassist Nico Brunstein.

Guitarist Skylar Knapp chimed in, adding: “Also, what would make us excited as a band? There is always a void for a band you wish existed so we are constantly trying to be that band because you’d be stoked about it.”

The band also shared a playlist exclusively to accompany the story’s launch – find out more about it here.

Following their North American tour supporting Fontaines D.C., the band will return to the UK and Europe for an extensive headline run in November making stops in Amsterdam, Berlin, Hamburg, Warsaw, Brussels, Paris, Bristol, Glasgow, Leeds, London and more. They will wrap up on December 2 in Belfast.
