New Release & Video: Beirut – Landslide

Zach Condon, the man behind the wonderful Beirut, has shared new song and music video for Landslide

The video, starring Game of Thrones’ Ian Beattie, is directed by Eoin Glaister and was shot in Kazakhstan. The single is taken from Beirut’s fifth studio album Gallipoli, out on February 1st…

The 12-track Gallipoli started life in the Winter of 2016, with Condon returning to his old Farfisa organ, the same one used to write the first two Beirut albums (2006’s Gulag Orkestar and the following year’s The Flying Club Cup), which he inherited from a travelling circus when he was a teenager

Following recording stints in New York and Berlin (where he now calls home), Condon settled in Sudestudio, a studio complex deep in rural Puglia, southern Italy. It was here that he rediscovered the old joys of music as a visceral experience which became the founding principle for Gallipoli

To celebrate the release of Gallipoli, Beirut will play headline shows throughout North America and Europe…
