‘The Rip Tide’, Beirut’s latest album, four years in the making, will be released August 30th via Pompeii Records (and Revolver in the U.S.), a label started by the band’s Zach Condon. Since no large labels were involved, it means full creative control for the band.

This release is said to make a “dramatic and intimate shift from The Flying Club Cup (2007) and his “stop-off in Mexico” by way of the March of the Zapotec EP (2009).” The Rip Tide will feature “East Harlem” and “Goshen,” songs on the band’s new limited edition single, out now.

Hear “East Harlem” here.

5. Payne’s Bay

7. Vagabond

8. The Peacock
