Beck has shared the surprise new single ‘Saw Lightning’ and announced his new album ‘Hyperspace’.
Drawing on that classic party-ready Beck mix of slide guitar, harmonic and hip-hop beats, ‘Saw Lightning’ was co-written and co-produced by Pharrell – who also contributes “drums, keyboards and mumbles” to the track. Check it out below.
While it’s currently without a release date, Beck has also confirmed that his 14th album ‘Hyperspace’ (the follow-up to 2017’s acclaimed ‘Colors‘) is on the horizon.
There has been a steady stream of new material from Beck recently, having teamed up with Cage The Elephant for ‘Night Running’, as well as releasing the beautiful ‘Tarantula’ for the movie Roma and dropping his Robyn and Lonely Island Collaboration ‘Super Cool’ from The Lego Movie 2.
Back in 2017, Beck spoke to NME about his desire to work with Kanye West. Perhaps he’ll make an appearance on the new record?
“I’ve never met him,” said Beck. “I’ve actually reached out to him to see if he would work on music with me. Even when I started this record, which was two years before the Grammys happened, I asked him to work on it. He was busy or not interested, I don’t know, I never got a direct answer from him.”
