Earlier this week, Beirut announced their fifth studio album Gallipoli and shared the album’s title track. The Zach Condon-led band has quickly followed that up with another single, “Corfu.” A completely instrumental piece, the song breaks away from the signature horns and anthemic melodies of Beirut’s typical fare. The title for “Corfu” is standard for Beirut though, who tend to name their songs after cities. Gallipoli is named after the Italian city where the band visited while recording and where Condon wrote the title track.

The record is out Feb. 1 via 4AD and follows 2015’s No, No, No. Beirut will be embarking on a tour behind Gallipoli in 2019, with a date in Seattle on Wednesday, Feb. 27 at the Paramount Theatre. Listen to “Corfu” below.
