Beirut announce new album No No No; Beirut fans are all like: yes yes yes!

It’s a fact: whenever you say stuff three times, that stuff becomes totally legit and exciting-sounding. Like, for instance: “Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice!” when you want to hang out with Michael Keaton. Or like: “shit, shit, shit!” when you step on a rusty nail. Or maybe: “location, location, location!” when you’re watching HGTV all day instead of getting your laundry and Marketing portfolio finished like you promised yourself you would. It just works. Period.

And hey! Now, by complete coincidence, the airtight logic I just espoused the shit-out-of up above can also be applied to the newest album by Zach Condon’s ever-adventurous Beirut project. Yes, it’s titled No No No, and it’s due out September 11 on the 4AD label in all of its triplicate goodness! According to the press release, the follow-up to 2011’s The Rip Tide was “recorded over a two-week period during one of the coldest New York winters — with blizzard after blizzard raging outside.” Joined by bassist Paul Collins and drummer Nick Petree, Condon apparently created the album in the wake of a physical/mental collapse and gnarly divorce in 2013. “I had completely broken down and my body was making me pay for it,” Condon said. “For the first time in my life, I was facing extreme self doubt. I had hit rock bottom.”

Hey great! So, you’re interested in hearing what THAT shit sounds like on wax, right? Well, good! Cuz here’s more happy-go-lucky Beirut-themed news: You can, at this very moment, pre-order the vinyl or CD version of No No No from the 4AD store or digitally via both iTunes with instant download of the title track “No No No” or Amazon with nothing whatsoever except for the satisfaction of hanging out on Amazon for a while… which is always kind of a nice feeling, I guess? Either way: in addition, you can listen to the title track and peep the band’s upcoming 2015 tour plans down below. Which is, in the preferred lingo of anthropomorphic teenage turtles everywhere: radical, radical, radical!
