Beirut: 'The Rip Tide' Video


Beirut is pleased to share with fans the new video for "The Rip Tide," the title-track to their latest, critically acclaimed album. Premiered recently on Pitchfork, "The Rip Tide" video is a gorgeous journey Directed by Houmam Abdallah. Zach Condon expounds on the song and the video:

"I always felt that 'The Rip Tide' wasn't fully able to project its own ambitions in song form . . . no matter how it was performed or recorded, it felt contained by sound alone. . . I wanted more, as I often do with my music, and this is not a bad thing. Growing to accept a song's limits is part of the process of creating and loving them. Which was why I was so excited to see what Houmam had dug into when he picked 'The Rip Tide' out of all others for a video. The concept fit, and the product brought the song somewhere that I had only been able to describe to myself, now available for others to see and feel it much more as I had in the process of writing it."
