Beach House have announced the full details of their fourth studio album, which will be titled 'Bloom' and released in May.

The Baltimore duo, who released their last LP 'Teen Dream' in 2010, will release their new record on May 14. The record's opening track 'Myth' is currently streaming online – scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to listen to the track.

Speaking to NME about the album, singer Victoria Legrand hinted that the album would feature darker subject matter than 'Teen Dream'. Her bandmate Alex Scally, meanwhile, revealed that the pair wanted the album to be similar to works such as The Cure's 'Disintegration' and The Beach Boys' 'Pet Sounds'.

The tracklisting for 'Bloom' is as follows:

'Myth'
'Wild'
'Lazuli'
'Other People'
'The Hours'
'Troublemaker'
'New Year'
'Wishes'
'On The Sea'
'Irene'


Beach House will also play two UK shows in May to support the release of the record. They will play:

Brighton Haunt (May 23)
London Village Underground (24)
