Beirut main man Zach Condon recorded his debut album (Gulag Orkestar) when aged 18, after dropping out of college in Santa Fé, New Mexico and running away to live in Paris, France.
Creating a unique international pop sound, that started to spread like wildfire on the independent scene, two more critically acclaimed albums followed - The Flying Club Cup and The Rip Tide - cementing Beirut’s reputation as a musical trailblazer, selling a million records along the way.
Whilst still a teenager, Zach led his Beirut band around the world, selling out multiple nights at legendary venues such as the Hammersmith Apollo and the Sydney Opera House, becoming a must-see band on the festival circuit with memorable performances at Glastonbury, Primavera and Coachella.
Now in his 20’s, Zach has come home to the 4AD label where he launched his career to release a fourth Beirut album titled No No No. Recorded over a two-week period in New York amidst one of the city’s coldest and snowiest winters, it’s Condon’s most vibrant and spirited record to date. Unlike previous outings, the band set-up is significantly pared down with guitar, piano, bass and drums forming the bulk of arrangements.
