Published Aug 11, 2017Beck has been teasing the follow-up to 2014's Grammy-winning Morning Phase LP with pop-leaning singles like "Dreams," "Wow" and "Up All Night," and now the eclectic singer-songwriter has revealed some details about his next release.
Titled Colors, his next full-length is currently slated for an October release, and it hears him closely collaborating with producer Greg Kurstin (best known for his work with pop idols Adele, Kelly Clarkson and Sia, but also working on Foo Fighters' latest effort).
The upcoming album signifies a reunion for Beck and Kurstin, as the latter played keyboards with the former on his 2002 Sea Change tour. The pair recorded Colors in Kurstin's home studio, playing basically every instrument on the record themselves.
"Between the two of us, we can play everything, and we don't have to go through the filter of other people," Beck told Rolling Stone.
He also elaborated on the experimental pop sound of the latest songs.
"These are complex songs all trying to do two or three things at once," he said. "It's not retro and not modern. To get everything to sit together so it doesn't sound like a huge mess was quite an undertaking."
Full album details have yet to arrive, but fans could get a preview of more new material at Beck's upcoming string of live shows. See his upcoming Canadian tour dates here.
