In less than a month, Beirut will release their first album in four years, Gallipoli. So far, the Zach Condon-led band has shared the title track, the instrumental “Corfu,” and, now, “Landslide.” Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately, depending on your opinion) it’s not a Fleetwood Mac cover. Instead, it’s a glimmering, organ-led song featuring Condon’s layered vocal harmonies. The single comes with a video directed by Eoin Glaister that was shot in Kazakhstan. The clip sees Game of Thrones’ Ian Beattie as a knight who’s having a humorously rough day where his horse continually taunts him, he loses a swordfight, and the damsel he rescues chooses to run off with the knight that bested him.
Gallipoli is out Feb. 1 via 4AD and follows 2015’s No, No, No. Beirut will be embarking on a tour behind the record next month, with a date in Seattle on Wednesday, Feb. 27 at the Paramount Theatre. Watch the video for “Landslide” below.

Following last week's letter from Zach Condon, Gallipoli now release date, tracklist, and lead single have been shared
