Beach House announced the release of the new album Once twice melody, is scheduled to arrive on February 18 via Bella Union.
Along with the news, the Baltimore dream-pop duo – consisting of Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally – shared four new singles, including the album’s title track, Superstar, Pink Funeral and Through me. In usual Beach House fashion, each song is lavishly idyllic and made up of their hazy vocal lines and ethereal melodies.
Once twice melody is Beach House’s eighth studio album and their first full release since 2018 7. The eighteen songs from the double album will be released over the next four months as “chapters”, accompanied by lyrical animations.
Beach House has also announced a UK and European tour that will begin in Dublin on May 21, before ending in Copenhagen on June 9. The duo will also perform in Glasgow, Manchester, London, Antwerp, Brussels and more.
Tickets on sale November 19.
