Beach House to Release New Album 'Bloom', Hear New Song

Photo by Liz Flyntz

Baltimore-native duo Beach House -- which let's face is pretty much one of the most lovely and magical duos of the past decade -- will release their highly-anticipated fourth album, Bloom, on May 15th via Sub Pop. The record was co-produced with Chris Coady (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TV on the Radio, !!!, Grizzly Bear, Blonde Redhead), who worked on the band's great, critically-acclaimed breakthrough record, 2010's Teen Dream. It sees the band continuing to explore a more fleshed out, a much richer, sound. It sounds like Beach House, but it also sounds like something entirely new, too. It is more than just a collection of songs. As guitarist/keyboardist Alex Scally says, "Many songs were omitted or dropped because they lacked a place within our vision for this album.”

But you don't have to wait until May 15th to get a taste of what Bloom has to offer. Hear the dreamy album cut "Myth" below.
