Beach House, the Baltimore duo that introduced confused Katy Perry fans to dream-pop, announced Tuesday that their new album, Depression Cherry, will be released Aug. 28. A worldwide tour, the dates for which are here, will start 10 days before that in Portland, naturally.

The album was recorded in Louisiana in 2014 and 2015, and a press release describes it as “a return to simplicity, with songs structured around a melody and a few instruments, with live drums playing a far lesser role.” Ah yes, the “back-to-basics” hook. That’s usually saved for the eponymous album, but Beach House already did that in 2006.

No new songs have been released yet, so let’s listen to “Zebra” and get super chill.
