The new Beach House song  “Sparks,” the first single from Depression Cherry, premiered earlier today on SiriusXM’s SiriusXMU channel.  “Sparks” has earned raves from the likes of NPR Music, Stereogum, Exclaim, Gorilla vs. Bear, Pretty Much Amazing, Consequence of Sound, Pigeons and Planes, and more. “Sparks” will be available as an instant download with pre-orders of Depression Cherry from the Sub Pop Mega Mart, iTunes, and Amazon.

Depression Cherry was produced and recorded over the span of two months by the band and Chris Coady at Studio in the Country in Bogalusa, Louisiana. Beach House will start their worldwide tour in support of Depression Cherry August 18th in Portland, ME at the State Theatre and end their 2015 dates with a sold-out 3-night stand December 17-19 in San Francisco at The Fillmore. Please find a complete list of dates below.

LP and CD versions of Depression Cherry will come packaged in a sumptuous red velvet sleeve. All customers who pre-order the LP version from megamart.subpop.com will receive the special, limited, clear vinyl Loser Edition (while supplies last). Additionally, there will be a new T-shirt design, available individually or as part of a bundle with purchase of the new record.

Beach House is Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally. They have been a band for over a decade living and working in Baltimore, MD. Depression Cherry is their 5th full- length record. This record follows the release of their self-titled album in 2006, Devotion in 2008, Teen Dream in 2010 and Bloom in 2012. Depression Cherry was recorded at Studio in the Country in Bogalusa, Louisiana from November ’14 through January ’15. This time period crossed the anniversaries of both John Lennon’s and Roy Orbison’s death.  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 them towards a louder, more aggressive place; a place farther from their natural tendencies. Here, they continue to let themselves evolve while fully ignoring the commercial context in which they exist.
