If you’re busy spinning Beach House‘s fifth album Depression Cherry in preparation for Laneway Festival, you’re going to have a new one to brush up on next week.
“We are very excited, it’s an album being released the way we want. It’s not a companion to depression cherry or a surprise or b-sides,” they wrote.
We waited three years for a follow-up after their fourth record Bloom, so this quick turn around is uncharacteristic and comes as a shock to most even in a musical climate where surprise releases are almost conventional.
It’s not a surprise to everybody though, as Stereogum pointed out. Earlier in the week Reddit users noticed that the URL for their Depression Cherry website had changed to www.dcandtyls.com. They then found, on a page that has now been blocked, lyrics for unreleased tracks and photos. They also managed to dig out what they suspect is the tracklisting to the record which can be soon below.
Next Friday all will be revealed when the album is released digitally and on vinyl. A CD release will follow soon after.
Beach House will play St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival at the beginning of next year.
