The third part of ‘Once Twice Melody’, featuring five songs, will come out on January 18 next year.

Produced entirely by Beach House themselves, ‘Once Twice Melody’ was mixed by Alan Moulder, Caesar Edmunds, Trevor Spencer, and Dave Fridmann. It was recorded at studios in Cannon Falls, Los Angeles and Baltimore.
