Beirut have a new album The Rip Tide, which is set to be released on Aug. 30 via Zach Condon's own label Pompeii Records. Now NPR Music has released a full album stream of The Rip Tide over at their web site. Beirut also played this past weekend at Lollaplooza, and we have some video from the show. The new Beirut single "East Harlem" was just released earlier this Summer, with a b-side of "Goshen."
it looks like an ever-expanding set of Beirut tour dates are being lined up for the remainder of 2011. The tour begins today with a show in London's Hyde Park, followed by a set of European dates and then North American dates that are heavy on U.S. shows.
