7 is the seventh studio album by American dream pop duo Beach House, released in May 2018 via Sub Pop, Bella Union and Mistletone Records.

Beach House is an American dream pop band from Baltimore, Maryland, formed in 2004. The band consists of vocalist and keyboardist Victoria Legrand and guitarist, keyboardist, and backup vocalist Alex Scally.

Their self-titled debut album Beach House was released in 2006 to critical acclaim and has been followed by Devotion (2008), Teen Dream (2010), Bloom (2012), Depression Cherry and Thank Your Lucky Stars (2015), B-Sides and Rarities (2017), and 7 (2018).

According to the band, 7 deals with "the beauty that arises in dealing with darkness; the empathy and love that grows from collective trauma; the place one reaches when they accept rather than deny." The album's title itself simply represents it being the duo's seventh studio album, saying they "hoped its simplicity would encourage people to look inside. No title using words that we could find felt like an appropriate summation of the album..".

The band cited the "societal insanity" during 2016 and 2017 as a deep influence on the creation of the record, elaborating: "there is quite a bit of chaos happening in these songs, and a pervasive dark field that we had little control over. The discussions surrounding women's issues were a constant source of inspiration and questioning. The energy, lyrics and moods of much of this record grew from ruminations on the roles, pressures and conditions that our society places on women, past and present. The twisted double edge of glamour, with its perils and perfect moments, was an endless source..”.

The album was recorded over several sessions by the band, initially in their home studio and then finished at Carriage House in Stamford, CT and Palmetto Studio in Los Angeles.

The album has received positive reviews from music critics with Rolling Stone magazine’s Simon Vozick-Levinson calling 7 "a radical blast of psychedelic pop bliss," saying "These are big songs, full of wonder, and Beach House know it. Seven albums in, they're at the start of something new…”.

Check out the singles:  Lemon Glow”; “Dive”; “Dark Spring”; and “Black Car”.

This LP record is an Australian exclusive release on white coloured vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve with silver foil and digital download code, pressed in Australia via Mistletone.
