Baltimore dream-pop duo Beach House have announced a new album, Depression Cherry, which will come out Aug. 28 on Sub Pop. You can preorder it now on LP or CD.

Beach House’s fifth album, the follow-up to 2012’s Bloom, was recorded and produced by band members Victoria Legrand and Alex Scaly with Chris Coady at Bogalusa, Louisiana's Studio in the Country, according to Pitchfork. Also, the album sleeve will be made from red velvet (!).

“In general, this record shows a return to simplicity, with songs structured around a melody and a few instruments, with live drums playing a far lesser role. With the growing success of Teen Dream and Bloom, the larger stages and bigger rooms naturally drove us towards a louder, more aggressive place; a place farther from our natural tendencies. Here, we continue to let ourselves evolve while fully ignoring the commercial context in which we exist.”

Here’s what they said about the album title: “For us, Depression Cherry is a color, a place, a feeling, an energy… that describes the place you arrive as you move through the endlessly varied trips of existence …”

The tracklist is below:

1. Levitation
2. Sparks
3. Space Song
4. Beyond Love
5. 10:37
6. PPP
7. Wildflower
8. Bluebird
9. Days of Candy

The band will also embark on a world tour starting in August, landing in L.A. for a two-night stint at the Fonda Theatre Dec. 9-10 and will hit S.F.’s Fillmore Dec. 17-18. Tickets for the L.A. shows go on sale this Friday, as well as for the S.F. shows.
