Baltimore’s Beach House will return once again this summer with a new B-Sides and Rarities album. The 14-track album is a compilation of songs gathered throughout their career, including 2 previously unreleased tracks recorded during the Depression Cherry and Thank Your Lucky Stars sessions in 2015, “Chariot” which they’ve shared today and “Baseball Diamond.”

“When we announced that we were releasing a B-sides and rarities album, someone on Twitter asked, ‘B-sides record? Why would Beach House put out a B-sides record? Their A-sides are like B-sides.’ This random person has a point. Our goal has never been to make music that is explicitly commercial. Over the years, as we have worked on our 6 LPs, it wasn’t the ‘best’ or most catchy songs that made the records, just the ones that fit together to make a cohesive work. Accordingly, our B-sides are not songs that we didn’t like as much, just ones that didn’t have a place on the records we were making.”

Give a listen to “Chariot” below followed by the track listing and stay tuned for the release on June 30th. Be sure to catch Beach House on tour later this month and pre-order the album now, by clicking here.
