Dirty Beaches is no more, streaming final album, ‘Stateless’
Alex Zhang Hungtai will release the next Dirty Beaches album, Stateless, next week (11/4) via Zoo Music -- the followup to 2013's Drifters/Love is the Devil -- and he's now saying it will be his last for the project. He tweeted the following:
