Details on Beirut’s next album

    It doesn’t have a name or a cemented release date yet, but Zach Condon is hoping for September to see the full-length follow-up to Gulag Orkestar. Owen Pallet of Final Fantasy has added some strings to the new work, and it was produced by Griffin Rodriguez, who has worked with Man Man. Condon says the new material is less Balkan-based than the sound of Gulag Orkestar. Songs that should show up on the sophomore set include “Cherbourg,” “A Sunday Smile,” “In the Mausoleum,” and “Guyamas Sonora.” [Billboard]
