It’s been two years since we last saw Beach House release an LP – 2010’s Teen Dream. Quite frankly, two years is long enough. I’ve been clamoring for a new album from this fantastic dream pop duo, and now they have officially announced their fourth album, entitled Bloom, along with a month-long international tour.

According to their Subpop Records site, “the landscape of Bloom was largely designed on the road, between the countless sound checks and myriad experiences during two years of tour.” Bloom was then recorded in late-2011 over a period of seven weeks at Sonic Ranch Studios in Tornillo, TX and mixed for another two at Electric Lady in NYC. The band – made up of Alex Scally and Victoria Legrand – co-produced the record with Chris Coady.

The album will be made available starting May 15th via Subpop Records on all formats. Beach House has released the lead single from the album, “Myth,” which you can download or stream down below. Also be sure to check out the tracklisting for Bloom and confirmed spring and summer tour dates below as well.
