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

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:
‘On The Sea’
Beach House will also play two UK shows in May to support the release of the record. They will play:
