Beach House have announced their eighth album will be released next year.
The duo of Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally first revealed their new album was on the way in a radio interview back in September. Now they’ve confirmed that it will arrive on February 18th, 2022 via Bella Union.
Titled Once Twice Melody, it can be pre-ordered here. Once Twice Melody will be available to buy in both a limited edition GOLD 2xLP and a SILVER edition 2xLP.
The album will be the first one entirely produced by Beach House themselves. They also used a live string ensemble for the first time, with arrangements by David Campbell, which should suit their haunting style of dream pop perfectly.
While the album is being released in February, Beach House are presenting the 18 tracks in an intriguing format: in the lead up to the physical release, Once Twice Melody will be presented in four chapters with lyric animations for each track. Check out the full release schedule below, with the first four song chapter expected this week:
