No No No

No No No, the new album by Beirut, is released today.

After featuring on NPR’s Morning Edition, and appearing on the inaugural Late Night with Stephen Colbert as part of an all-star ensemble, today sees the international release of the group’s fourth studio album No No No.

Preceded by the title track and latest single ‘Gibraltar’, the nine track album finds Zach Condon and his band releasing their first music since 2011’s The Rip Tide.

No No No is the group’s most stripped-down effort to date. A warm collection of tracks (many instrumental), the album leans on the heart worn sentimentality that fans have come to expect from Beirut. But surprisingly, it’s also a song cycle lacking many of the Mexican-influenced flushes of March of the Zapotec, or the Balkan-inspired flourishes of his earlier work.
