Beach House Preview Forthcoming Album '7' With New Song, 'Dive'

Baltimore synth-pop duo also announce world tour beginning in April

Beach House released a second new single off their forthcoming album 7 with "Dive." 7 is the band's first album of new material since 2015.

The song begins in dreamy repose, but at the midpoint, turns into a messy, dance-driven stomp that's unusual for the synth-pop duo. Similar to the other new single, "Lemon Glow," this song's uptempo gives the band's sound a new kind of urgency.  

Last year, Beach House released B-Sides and Rarities, a compilation album featuring previously unreleased cuts from across their career. It followed the double releases of 2015: Depression Cherry and the surprise-released Thank Your Lucky Stars. Depression Cherry debuted at Number Eight on the Billboard 200.

Beach House also revealed a world tour that will launch ahead of the album's release and end in October. The day their new album drops, they will perform a show in Mexico City.
