Beach House Announce New Album, ‘Depression Cherry’

The follow-up to 2012's 'Bloom' drops on August 28 via Sub Pop

Beach House have announced plans to release a new album, Depression Cherry, which is accompanied by a world tour (see dates below) and is set to drop on August 28 via Sub Pop in North America. And here’s the (arguably) best part: The sleeve for the LP and CD (pictured above) will be made of red velvet. Describing their follow-up to 2012’s Bloom, Scally and Legrand — whose 2010 record Teen Dream was recently featured in SPIN’s 300 Best Albums of the Past 30 Years — said in a press release:

In general, this record shows a return to simplicity, with songs structured around a melody and a few instruments, with live drums playing a far lesser role. With the growing success of Teen Dream and Bloom, the larger stages and bigger rooms naturally drove us towards a louder, more aggressive place; a place farther from our natural tendencies. Here, we continue to let ourselves evolve while fully ignoring the commercial context in which we exist. For us, Depression Cherry is a color, a place, a feeling, an energy… that describes the place you arrive as you move through the endlessly varied trips of existence…
