Gallipoli is the fifth studio album by indie folk band Beirut. It is expected to be released on February 1, 2019. The album is named after the Italian town where the title track was written. It is supported by the singles “Gallipoli” and “Corfu”. The band will tour in support of the album in 2019.
Work on the album began in late 2016, with Condon holding recording sessions in various cities, including New York City, Apulia, Italy, and Berlin (where Condon lives). The album is produced by Gabe Wax, who also produced the band’s previous album, 2015’s No No No, and also features Condon playing the Farfisa organ.[ The album was announced in a statement on the band’s Facebook page that also explained the timeline of its creation.
