With a recently announced tour and single, this news is hardly a surprise, but it's good to hear nonetheless: Beirut have officially announced the project's new full-length.
The album by Zach Condon and co. will be called The Rip Tide and will be released on August 30 through Condon's own Pompeii Records.
The press release doesn't shed much more info than that on the album, which marks the proper full-length follow-up to Beirut's 2007 effort The Flying Club Cub. But we do have a tracklisting and you can listen to the new track "East Harlem" below. Also, you can see Beirut's upcoming live schedule below as well.
