Beirut announces new album 'Gallipoli'

Following on from his critically-accalimed 2015 album 'No No No', Zach Condon aka Beirut has now announced his plans for a new studio LP, arriving early next year.

The new full-length 'Gallipoli' will become his fifth studio record to date, is being previewed by the new title-track, and is expected to be released on the 1st February via 4AD.

Speaking about the new single, Condon explained, “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. The next day I wrote the song entirely in one sitting, pausing only to eat.”
