On August 30, Beirut will drop The Rip Tide, the band’s first album in four years. This release features “East Harlem” and “Goshen,” two tracks that appear on the new limited edition single. “East Harlem” has a more polished, straightforward pop sound than the songs on Beirut’s last LP, 2007′s The Flying Club Cup, but that ukelele is still in full force. Stream the tune below.
