Beirut announces new album 'Gallipoli'

There’s also new world tour dates and the album’s title track is streaming now.

Beirut have announced details of a new album! ‘Gallipoli’ is coming out on 1st February via 4AD and its title track is streaming now.

“We stumbled into the medieval-fortressed island town of Gallipoli one night and followed a brass band procession fronted by priests carrying a statue of the town’s saint through the winding narrow streets behind what seemed like the entire town,” Zach Condon says of the origins of the title track. “The next day I wrote the song entirely in one sitting, pausing only to eat.”

Alongside the track and album news, Beirut are set to head out on a North American and European tour next year, including their biggest London show to date at Hammersmith Apollo.
