Beirut releases Elephant Gun single

Beirut's track "Elephant Gun" can be seen as a mere sidestep into a fantastical safari land dream, a hint at the the grandeur of escape and travel that Zach Condon and team have been fashioning over the last few years. Others seem eager to call it their best tune to date. As all of us eager beavers await the release of the next Beirut album we are pleased that the band has decided to whet our appetites for the upcoming release with the official digital release of the Elephant Gun single with b-sides that include a new song ("Transatlantique") as well as a live recording of a Jaques Brel tune ("Le Moribond"). Go get it now at eMusic.

Also, as a benefit for those who live in our western city, Beirut has decided to grant us with their presence this coming fall. Good things come to those who wait.

10/10/07 - Avalon (tix) - $22
