Beirut is baaaaack. Finally, after four long years the band have announced they will be releasing a new album, The Rip Tide. This highly anticipated record will be released on August 30th… Yeah thats right, all in due time kids! But if you just cant sit around waiting on your ass for it to drop below is a stream of the single “East Harlem” which has been released as a limited edition single alongside the track “Goshen”.

The Rip Tide will be released internationally and independently on Pompeii Records, a label that was started by Beirut’s own Zach Condon “with no large label affiliation whatsoever, so as to keep full creative control”.  Beirut, always doing it right. Oh and apparently Mr. Conden wrote East Harlem when he was only 17 years old, nice little touch.
