Beirut - Zach Condon

Beirut has announced a new album. On November 10, Zach Condon and company will release Hadsel via Pompeii Records. The name of the album comes from an island in Norway, where he was inspired by an old church organ from the 1800s. The first song they’ve shared is “So Many Plans,” which you can hear below.

“During my time in Hadsel, I worked hard on the music, lost in a trance and stumbling blindly through my own mental collapse that I had been pushing aside since I was a teenager,” Condon said in a press release. “It came and rang me like a bell. I was left agonizing many things past and present while the beauty of the nature, the northern lights and fearsome storms played an awesome show around me. The few hours of light would expose the unfathomable beauty of the mountains and the fjords, and the hours-long twilights would fill me with subdued excitement. I’d like to believe that scenery is somehow present in the music.”
