Beirut returns on June 6 with a new single, ‘East Harlem’ / ‘Goshen’.

Released via Zach Condon’s own Pompeii Records imprint, it’s available on limited edition blue or white 7″ vinyl, as well as digitally. The first new material from Beirut since 2009’s March of the Zapotec EP, ‘East Harlem’ finds Condon in sunny form, his vocal performance framed by ukelele, piano and trumpet; ‘Goshen’ is a more sparse, melancholic number.
