Beirut Confirms New Album

Good news: Beirut has just announced they will be releasing their first album in four years on Aug. 30. The album, called The Rip Tide, will be the band’s fourth official relase and from what we’ve heard so far, it sounds much different from previous records The Flying Club Cup and Gulag Orkestar.

The album will be released on Pompeii Records, which is owned by the band’s songwriter Zach Condon. The track listing is available below, as well as a list of upcoming tour dates in support of the album.
