Beach House play ‘One Thing’ live on Colbert – watch

The track is taken from surprise new album 'Thank Your Lucky Stars'

After releasing a late-notice second album of the year in ‘Thank Your Lucky Stars’, Beach House have performed a track from the album, ‘One Thing’, on American TV show Colbert.

‘Depression Cherry’, Beach House’s fifth album, was released in August, and followed just a few weeks later by ‘Thank Your Lucky Stars’, which was announced just a few weeks prior to its release and came out on October 16.

Speaking of the latter album, the band tweeted:


“It’s an album being released the way we want. It’s not a companion to Depression Cherry or a surprise or b-sides.”

“It was recorded at the same time as Depression Cherry, but for us, it’s very much a different record. All of its songs were written after the DC songs. Along the way we realized that we didn’t want it to be released in the traditional manner. Mainly, we just wanted our listeners to hear it first.”


The band will be playing a UK an Ireland tour shortly, with dates as follows:

Belfast Mandela Hall (October 26)
Dublin Vicar Street (28)
Glasgow Arches (29)
Leeds University Stylus (30)
Manchester HMV Ritz (31)
London Roundhouse (November 2)
Bristol Anson Rooms (3)

‘Thank Your Lucky Stars’ is now streaming in full, here.
