Beck’s ‘Morning Phase’ goes silver in UK after selling 60,000 copies

The record was released in February 2014 and won 'Album of the Year' at the 2015 Grammys

Beck‘s 2014 album ‘Morning Phase’ has been certified silver in the UK.

The record, Beck’s 12th full-length to date, was released in February 2014 and awarded ‘Album of the Year’ at this year’s Grammy Awards. Now, the BPI has announced that it has sold over 60,000 copies.

Meanwhile, Alt-J’s album ‘This Is All Yours’ has gone gold, shifting 100,000 since its release in September 2014.

Kanye West recently apologised for mock-interrupting him at the Grammys. West took to Twitter to issue the public apology following the incident on February 8 when Kanye followed him to the stage in reference to his infamous interruption of Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV VMAs. West did not interrupt Beck’s acceptance, but later said that the award should have gone to fellow nominee Beyoncé and that Beck should “respect artistry” and hand the award over to her.

Asked about the incident in interview with Zane Lowe, West said: “Yeah, I misconstrued [the situation], but I think everybody has the right to an opinion, everybody has a right to be wrong… I expressed my opinion and I take the weight of it.”

He also repeated a story about hearing Beck’s music after the awards and having a change of heart: “As I was ironically having dinner with Taylor Swift, the Beck song starts playing and I was like, ‘Wow, this is really good, maybe I might have been wrong.’”

Speaking about the event itself, West said: “I hadn’t been in six years and the Grammys are definitely like an ex-girlfriend. As soon as you get in a car with them, you want to go right back home.”

After the interview was broadcast, West tweeted: “I would like to publicly apologise to Beck, I’m sorry Beck.”
