Beach House have announced their forthcoming studio album, Once Twice Melody, which is out on February 18th, 2022 via Sub Pop. As part of the announcement, they’ve shared the first four songs from the album.
Today, we’ve gotten “Superstar,” “Pink Funeral,” “Through Me,” and the title track. The Baltimore duo’s first four tunes from the album channel their quintessential celestial sound. Most of the tunes revolve around twinkling melodies and ethereal organs. “Superstar” is a big stand out, with more of a shadowy sound than the rest.
Once Twice Melody will be released in chapters leading up to its release date. The second chapter, which will have tracks 5-8, will be out on December 8th. Made up of 18 tracks, the new album is sure to be stacked with all the dream pop you could ever ask for.
Listen to the first four songs from Once Twice Melody below.
The forthcoming album marks the first record Beach House produced entirely themselves. It also features a live string ensemble and arrangements from Dave Campbell. Alan Moulder mixed the album with Caesar Edmunds, Trevor Spencer, and Dave Fridmann.
Once Twice Melody serves as the follow-up to 2018’s 7. Chapter Two is out on December 8th, Chapter Three is out January 19th, and the full album drops on February 18th.
More about Beach House:
In April, Beach House made their return with “Marin’s Dreams.” The video for the track was released for Meow Wolf’s Omega Mart exhibition.
The seven-minute video was inspired by the Las Vegas supermarket installation. The 52,000 square foot exhibit took place in person at AREA15. The video tells the fictional tale of the imaginary Omega Mart CEO’s missing granddaughter. It’s soundtracked by Beach House’s signature shoegazy sound. Revisit the video for “Marin’s Dreams” here.
