 The album was recorded at Sonic Ranch Studios in Tornillo, Texas, and was co-produced by Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Blonde Redhead producer Chris Coady, who also produced the band's previous album Teen Dream. Beach House chose to record in west Texas after being captivated by the area while resting there during a tour. Bloom was mixed at Electric Lady Studios in New York City. The album took seven weeks to record.
Victoria LeGrand described the album's title as an "abstraction of many feelings." LeGrand continued:
To find a word or a set of words we felt curated the whole thing, Bloom was it. And it was based off of feeling and just a belief in the word. It actually has more weight for me than it has an ethereal quality. It came about where it made sense. [..] For things to feel right, it definitely has to sit for a while and I think that's why it's not ethereal for me. I associate that word with fleeting or not having any substance, I don't know. [..] I'm just saying that for us there's a certain intensity with this record, and I think the word "bloom" is an attempt at that.
The first song released from Bloom, "Myth," was posted on Beach House's website on March 6, 2012. On March 8, 2012, the album's release date was announced. A second song from the album, "Lazuli," was released as a Record Store Day single on April 13, 2012

Track Review: Beach House, 'Myth'

BEACH HOUSE "Myth" (4:18) Producers: Beach House, Chris Coady Writer: Beach House Publisher: Chrysalis Label: Sub Pop Records

It's been two long years since Beach House**, Baltimore's premier space-pop duo, blew our minds with its masterful third album, "Teen Dream." "Myth," the first single from the pair's upcoming "Bloom," is the sonic equivalent of comfort food -- a savory buffet spread of the musical trademarks the group has already perfected elsewhere. Victoria Legrand's scratchy, haunting voice saunters in expanses of reverb over pillowy programmed percussion and pawn-shop organ plinks. Guitarist Alex Scally chirps out pristine, slow-motion arpeggios, building to a climactic flourish of rapid-fire, high-octave notes, like storm clouds weeping profusely. "It's never as it seems," Legrand sings, her luxurious melodies climbing and falling in predictable rapture. In this case, "Myth" is exactly as it seems. Beach House's mind-blowing template isn't broke, and the band isn't in any rush to fix it.

Great song should definitely check it out if you have not yet..
