Beirut (Zach Condon) has announced that his fifth studio album Gallipoli will be available February 1st, 2019 via record label 4AD.
As per the album announcement: “The 12-track Gallipoli started life in the winter of 2016, with Condon returning to his old Farfisa organ, the same one used to write the first two Beirut albums (2006’s Gulag Orkestar and the following year’s The Flying Club Cup). Following recording stints in New York and Berlin (where he now calls home), Condon settled in Sudestudio, a studio complex deep in rural Puglia, southern Italy. It was here that he rediscovered the old joys of music as a visceral experience which became the founding principle for Gallipoli.”
Condon will begin touring extensively throughout North America and Europe starting in February in support of the album release.
