Zach Condon, aka the guy behind Beirut, spent most of last winter recording in an upstate New York studio. And it appears that the tracks he laid to tape will come our way as a proper full-length album — and not as a double-EP like 2009’s March of the Zapotec/Holland EP. The album, which is not yet titled, will be Condon’s first proper record since he dropped The Flying Club Cup in 2007.
According to an interview with HitFlix, he described the music we’ll hopefully hear this summer as “sunny.” He added, “I write sad songs when it’s nice outside. I write warm and happy songs when I’m up to my neck in snow for three months.” Makes sense.
