Baltimore duo Beach House (Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally) released a new album, 7 (titled as such because it’s their seventh album), back in May via Sub Pop. It was our Album of the Week. Now they have officially shared the non-album track “Alien.” The song briefly leaked on YouTube last week, before being taken down quickly, and was previously available as a B-side on a limited-edition tour-only 7-inch, but now it has been officially released online. Listen to it below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates, including some newly announced Australian shows.

Read our recent exclusive interview with Beach House on 7.

Previously Beach House shared the album’s “Lemon Glow” (which was one of our Songs of the Week) and “Dive” (which was also one of our Songs of the Week), as well as a video for “Dive.” (They also released a lengthy statement about the album.) Then they shared the album’s third single, “Dark Spring,” via a visually arresting video for the song. “Dark Spring” was our #1 Song of the Week. Then they shared “Black Car,” which was also our #1 Song of the Week. The band also stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to perform “Drunk in LA.” Then they shared a video for “Black Car,” a video for “Drunk in LA” directed by Sonic Boom (aka Pete Kember, formerly of Spacemen 3), and a remix of “Black Car” by Sonic Boom.

Beach House put out two albums in 2015: Depression Cherry and Thank Your Lucky Stars, both via Sub Pop. In 2017 they released a B-sides and rarities compilation, fittingly titled B-Sides and Rarities, also via Sub Pop.
