Baltimore dream-pop duo Beach House are planning to release a surprise album next week called Thank Your Lucky Stars.
It follows hot on the heels of their fifth album Depression Cherry, which was released at the end of August.
The critically acclaimed band, comprised of vocalist and organist Victoria Legrand and guitarist Alex Scally, caught the music media off-guard when they revealed their plans last night:
But while everyone is labelling it a ‘surprise album’, that’s clearly not a description the band feel comfortable with:
We are very excited, it's an album being released the way we want. It's not a companion to depression cherry or a surprise or b-sides

However you want to label it, Thank Your Lucky Stars will be out just in time for Beach House’s run of four UK and Ireland shows at the end of October.
Beach House play:
24 Oct: Belfast, Mandela Hall
25 Oct: Dublin, Vicar Street
26 Oct: Glasgow, ABC
