The Baltimore duo – comprised of Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally – are releasing the follow-up to 2018’s ‘7’ in four separate instalments. They dropped the first four tracks last November, with part two arriving last month.
Today (January 19) Beach House have uploaded ‘Chapter Three’, which is made up of five new cuts: ‘Sunset’, ‘Only You Know’, ‘Another Go Around’, ‘Masquerade’ and ‘Illusion Of Forever’.
As with the previous chapters, the group’s latest offering arrives with accompanying official visuals. You can tune in below.

Speaking in a new interview with NME, Beach House singer Victoria Legrand described ‘Once Twice Melody’ as “the most all-consuming album that we’ve ever worked on”.
“We became so fully submerged in this universe,” she explained. “By far this was the most intense: we felt like life was rife and we felt completely consumed in our art.”
Legrand added: “There were dangerous elements to it, there were beautiful elements to it – I feel like it was a very challenging album in many ways.”
