Beck - 'Looking For A Sign'

A grizzled acoustic lament

Beck - 'Looking For A Sign'

Album Info

  • Release Date: March 20, 2012
  • Label: XL
  • Fact: Beck has been recording alongside LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy, Devendra Banhart, No Age and more to provide the soundtrack to a new artwork by Doug Aitken in Washington, DC
Written for the soundtrack to new film Jeff Who Lives At Home, this grizzled acoustic lament suggests Beck has been listening to a shedload of Neil Young recently. If it’s a primer for his long-awaited 11th album, it could well signal a return to the gorgeous melancholia of 2002’s ‘Sea Change’ – which is not a bad move at all.
