Premiered on BBC 6Music this morning, Beirut have now shared a new video for 'Gibraltar', the opening track on their forthcoming album No No No.
You can watch the official video now in the player below.
Joining forces once more with Brother Willis (makers of the kaleidoscopic video for recent single ‘No No No’), and interested by the idea of a setting beside the sea and “the massive island of trash which is growing and floating out in the Pacific,” ‘Gibraltar’ follows Beirut leader Zach Condon and band members Paul Collins and Nick Petree picking their way through a fantasy Gibraltar to meet its ‘Rock’. The landscape – eerily abandoned and filled with detritus – is a world away from its real-life European namesake.
Last week, Beirut were the musical guests on Late Night with Seth Meyers, where the six-piece played ‘No No No’ for the first time. Watch the performance in full here.
Beirut’s headline tour begins next month, and with tickets for their only UK show – at London’s Brixton Academy – sold out, the New Yorkers have announced another London show in Hackney’s St John’s Church. Tickets for the show are now on sale.
No No No is released digitally and on CD and LP from September 11th.
