‘Depression Cherry’ is the fifth studio album by American dream pop duo Beach House. It was co-produced by the group and Chris Coady, and was originally released on August 28, 2015. It contains the band’s most famous tune, ‘Space Song’, a viral hit for the band, with over 700 million streams worldwide to date.
Now available on 140g vinyl with red metallic foil outer sleeve.
Beach House wrote the majority of the record between autumn 2013 and 2014; ‘10:37’ was one of the first songs to be written during this period. The album was recorded at Studio in the Country in Bogalusa, Louisiana over two months from November 2014 to January 2015. It was coproduced by Chris Coady, who worked on the band’s previous two records, ‘Teen Dream’ (2010) and ‘Bloom’. Prior to joining the band in the studio, they sent him phone recordings of some of their in-progress songs. For the song ‘Days of Candy’, they hired eight singers from Pearl River Community College to create a 24-part choir. After completing that song and ‘Levitation’, the band knew they had the album’s closing and opening tracks, respectively, and considered the record completed. The album was mixed at Sunset Sound in Hollywood, California, except ‘Beyond Love’, which was mixed at Sonic Ranch in Tornillo, Texas.
