Rejoice, fans of the Gulag! Beirut and his Orkestar will be back in October with a new album.
The record is still untitled, but a tracklisting has been confirmed. Find it lying somewhere below. A lot of it is French.
Beirut, AKA 21-year-old Zach Condon, was flanked by an eight-piece band for the recordings. Condon was also helped out by Owen Pallett, who helped put together the string arrangements and contributed vocals to 'Cliquot'.
Tracklisting, as promised:
'A Call To Arms'
'A Sunday Smile'
'Forks and Knives (La Fête)'
'In The Mausoleum'
'Un Dernier Verre (Pour la Route)'
'The Flying Club Cup'
Beirut will play a free gig on London's South Bank this coming Monday - if you want to go, get yourself to the Royal Festival Hall at 6pm. You'll be lead, possibly by the hand, to a secret location and the show will start at half six.
