Beach House Reveals and Details Surprise LP “Thank Your Lucky Stars”

Their second album of 2015 is out next Friday digitally and on vinyl, which means that this was a very well kept secret.

For those of you who had your emotions toyed with via headlines of a non-existent new Beach House track on a non-existent podcast, there is good news and this is not a drill. I repeat: this is not a drill.

The saga of Thank Your Lucky Stars—the surprise second Beach House record of 2015—started two days ago on the Beach House subreddit, where a sharp-eyed superfan noticed that the band’s site was hosting lyrics and images that appeared to be companion material for a new release (those posts have since been taken down, but you can view captures of the lyrics and images in the comments of the original thread here). Whether or not the band intended to reveal everything at this point isn’t clear, but they have since gone on to confirm and detail the upcoming release, which is out October 16, and follows less than two months after the stellar Depression Cherry.

In addition to the track listing and cover (which are below), the band has also noted via Facebook that the album is up for preorder already, as baffling as that is to comprehend given the three-to-six month turnaround needed for a major vinyl release. They also went on to detail the album as such:

It was recorded at the same time as Depression Cherry, but for us, it’s very much a different record. All of its songs were written after the DC songs. Along the way we realized that we didn’t want it to be released in the traditional manner. Mainly, we just wanted our listeners to hear it first. We will have more info later……

On Twitter, the band has noted that Thank Your Lucky Stars is “not a companion to depression cherry or a surprise of b-sides.” Sure, sure. We’ve heard that one before.
