Beach House To Release ‘7’, The Group’s 7th Album, Worldwide On May 11th, 2018. Now Experience The Transcendent New Track, “Dive”

Headlining worldwide tour dates: April 30th-October 20th, 2018

Cry those tears of joy, because Beach House will release 7, the group’s 7th full-length record, on CD/LP/CS/DL May 11th, 2018. The new Beach House album will be available worldwide on Sub Pop, except in Europe and Australia/New Zealand, where it will be released by Bella Union and Mistletone.

7 features standouts including the Valentine’s Day ‘18 single “Lemon Glow”, along with “Black Car,” “Drunk In LA,” “Dark Spring,” and today, their latest offering, the transcendent “Dive”. All of the songs on 7 began in Beach House’s home studio in Baltimore, and were finished at Carriage House in Stamford, CT and Palmetto Studio in Los Angeles. The album was mixed by Alan Moulder.

Beach House (Alex Scally and Victoria Legrand) released B-sides and Rarities in 2017, which served as a proverbial “cleaning out the closet” to pave way for a new creative process.  Their approach in the creation of 7 was rebirth and rejuvenation.  Scally and Legrand used to limit themselves to what they thought they could perform live, but this time that limitation was ignored.  Also, instead of one long studio session, Beach House recorded when inspired by batches of songs, which resulted in five mini-sessions over the course of eleven months.
Unlike the last four albums, 7 didn’t have a producer in the traditional sense. Spacemen 3’s Sonic Boom (Peter Kember) became a significant force on this record by shedding conventions and helping to keep the songs alive, fresh, and protected from the destructive elements of recording studio overproduction and over-perfection.  The band’s trusted live drummer from 2016 to the present, James Barone, played on the entire record, helping to keep rhythm at the center of a lot of these songs.

7 is available for preorder now from Sub PopBella Union (Europe), and Mistletone (Australia / New Zealand). Pre-orders of the LP through and select independent retailers in North America will receive the limited Loser Edition on opaque yellow vinyl. There will also be a new T-shirt design available.
