Beck - 'Looking For A Sign'
A grizzled acoustic lament
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.
