New LP 'Morning Phase' is set for release on February 24
Beck is streaming his new single ‘Blue Moon’ online.
Click below to listen to the first song to be taken from his forthcoming album ‘Morning Phase’, which is set for release on February 24. Beck previewed the song last week. He has also unveiled the artwork for the album, which you can see above.
Speaking about the album previously, Beck told Rolling Stone: “I’m just fumbling around with chords and a mood. The songs are coming out of a California tradition. I’m hearing The Byrds, Crosby Stills and Nash, Gram Parsons, Neil Young – the bigger idea of what that sound is to me.”
He added: “There’s this feeling of tumult and uncertainty, getting through that long, dark night of the soul – whatever you want to call it. These songs were about coming out of that – how things do get better.”
‘Morning Phase’ is Beck’s first album in six years, coming after ‘Modern Guilt’ in 2008. The album is described as being a “companion piece” to the largely acoustic ‘Sea Change’, released in 2002, and will include a number of guest stars. Confirmed names set to appear on ‘Morning Phase’ include Justin Meldal-Johnsen, Joey Waronker, Smokey Hormel, Roger Joseph Manning Jr and Jason Falkner.
The ‘Morning Phase’ tracklisting is:
‘Heart Is A Drum’
