One of the more hotly anticipated albums of 2012 has been Bloom, the fourth full-length album from Baltimore-based dream popper’s Beach House, which is due out on May 15th via Sub Pop. Given the anticipation, it’s not surprising to hear reports that the album has already leaked.
If you’ve already got a copy, I’m jealous. But for everyone else – the anti-downloading purists, as well as those terrible at finding leaks (like me!) – the band has been kind enough to release their first single off the upcoming album, “Myth.” You can stream it below, or get a free download from the band in exchange for your e-mail address. Fan of 2010′s Teen Dream won’t be disappointed, as the band continues to play with slow beats and a hazy sound.
Beach House – Myth
Listen for: the rhythm change at 2:05.
Favorite Lyric: “If you built yourself a myth/ You’d know just what to give”
[UPDATE] Beach House just posted the cover artwork from Bloom. I would like to decorate my bedroom with it.
