As expected, dream pop duo Beach House are returning with a new album this spring. Dubbed Bloom, this follow-up to their lauded 2010 effort Teen Dream will be out on May 15 through Sub Pop.
The record was recorded in late 2011 at at Sonic Ranch Studios in Tornillo, TX and mixed at Electric Lady in NYC. Bloom was co-produced by Beach House and Chris Coady.
The press release offers this description of the record: "The landscape of Bloom was largely designed on the road, between the countless sound checks and myriad experiences during two years of tour. Throughout this period, melodies, chords, rhythms, words, and textures surfaced in moments of their own choosing. These spontaneous ideas were later gathered and developed in Baltimore, where the band lives and works."
You can listen to the new song "Myths" at the bottom of the page. Also below, you'll find Bloom's tracklist and the band's upcoming dates.
