Baltimore duo Beach House (Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally) are releasing a B-sides and rarities compilation, fittingly titled B-Sides and Rarities, on June 30 via Sub Pop (and Bella Union in the U.K./Europe). It features two previously unreleased songs (“Chariot” and “Baseball Diamond”) and the band previously shared “Chariot.” Now “Chariot” has a video self-directed by the band. It consists of stock footage, mainly of former President John F. Kennedy and First Lady Jackie Kennedy. A press release says the video “is a rumination on the creation, cultivation, and confusion of narratives in media.” Watch it below, followed by their upcoming tour dates.

“The idea for a B-sides record came when we realized just how many non-album songs had been made over the years, and how hard it was to find and hear many of them,” said the band in a previous lengthy statement. “This compilation contains every song we have ever made that does not exist on one of our records.”

Beach House put out two albums in 2015: Depression Cherry and Thank Your Lucky Stars, both via Sub Pop. Here’s our review of Thank Your Lucky Stars. Also read our 2015 interview with Beach House’s Victoria Legrand about Depression Cherry.
