Madagascar Palm – new leaves turning brown.. with droplets??

I moved recently, and my Madagascar Palm's new leaves are turning brown and even feature some odd little droplets. It does get some hours of direct sun. Any ideas?

This appears to be a fungal infection. I would make sure that the soil dried out, almost completely, between each watering.

The next time that you water, I would also recommend replacing 1/4 of the water with peroxide. This will help kill off anything that may be infecting the tree.
