Beach House Announces Surprise Album
Out of nowhere, Beach House has announced that they are releasing another full-length album next week on October 16th. Entitled Thank Your Lucky Stars, it's their sixth album and second in two months.
The previous album, Depression Cherry just came out on August 28th. Given what we know about the long lead times for getting a vinyl record out, it's clear this has been in the works for awhile. Here's what the band had to say about the album:
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— Beach House (@BeaccchHoussse) October 7, 2015
What's particularly interesting is that the band is releasing the album on vinyl and digitally first, with the CD version coming later. According to their label, Sub Pop, "A CD format of the album will be available in the coming weeks."
If you pre-order from the Sub Pop store, you'll get the "Loser Edition" on green vinyl.
