The Baltimore duo return with their fifth album.

Beach House — the duo of Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally — will follow-up 2012’s Bloom with the impeccably-titled Depression Cherry. The band has shared the following statement, along with a track listing annotated with selected lyrics.

“In general, this record shows a return to simplicity, with songs structured around a melody and a few instruments, with live drums playing a far lesser role. With the growing success of Teen Dream and Bloom, the larger stages and bigger rooms naturally drove us towards a louder, more aggressive place; a place farther from our natural tendencies. Here, we continue to let ourselves evolve while fully ignoring the commercial context in which we exist.”

1. Levitation – “The branches of the trees, they will hang lower now, you will grow too quick, then you will get over it”
2. Sparks – “It’s a gift, taken from the lips, you live again”
3. Space Song – “What makes this fragile world go ‘round, were you ever lost, was she ever found?”
4. Beyond Love – “They take the simple things inside you and put nightmares in your hands”
5. 10:37 – “ Here she comes, all parts of everything, stars in the motherhand”
6. PPP – “Did you see it coming, it happened so fast, the timing was perfect, water on glass…”
7. Wildflower – “What’s left you make something of it”
8. Bluebird – “I would not ever try to capture you”
9. Days of Candy – “I know it comes too soon, the universe is riding off with you…… i want to know you there, the universe is riding off with you.”

Depression Cherry will be released August 28 via Bella Union and by Sub Pop in North America and Mistletone in Australia and New Zealand. Physical versions of the album come packaged in a “sumptuous red velvet sleeve.” In addition, the band will embark on an extensive world tour this fall and winter; those dates follow.
