Zach Condon has shared another new song from Beirut’s forthcoming album Hadsel, along with some rare live dates. “The Tern” follows “So Many Plans.” “In the end I was confused how I had written such a seemingly positive and even hopeful song, but once I took a closer look at the lyrics, I saw the real nature of the hidden defeat and triumph of caution rather than of hope,” Condon said in a statement. Check it out below.
Condon’s first shows since the 2019 tour behind Gallipoli will take place February 16 and 17, 2024, at Berlin’s Tempodrom. They’re the only shows he plans to perform in support of the album. Condon will be joined live by Aaron Arntz (piano), Ben Lanz (trombone/sousaphone/piano), Clarice Jensen (cello), Griffin Rodriguez (bass), Kyle Resnick (trumpet), Nick Petree (drums/percussion), and Yuki Numata (violin).
