The element of surprise for their comeback may have been bodged (first by people at the studio they recorded in, then by an ‘accidental’ post on Canadian website Exclaim) but we sure are glad to see that Beach House themselves are finally ready to unveil the first taste of album number four, Bloom. Listen to/download the gorgeous opener ‘Myth’ below.
Although Bella Union have yet to confirm a release date for Bloom, it’s expected to drop on May 14. Check out the (also unconfirmed) tracklist below:
04 Other People
05 The Hours
07 New Year
09 On The Sea
Beach House’s only confirmed UK gig for 2012 so far will be at End Of The Road Festival on August 31 as part of Bella Union’s fifteen-year anniversary celebrations. Alessi’s Ark, Hannah Cohen, I Break Horses, Lanterns On The Lake, Mountain Man, Our Broken Garden and Veronica Falls are among the other Bella Union acts performing on the day.
