You can now listen to “Blue Moon”, the first song to be taken from Beck‘s forthcoming album “Morning Phase”, which is set for release on February 24. 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. Pre-order “Morning Phase” on iTunes.

sound and vision

beck-sound-and-vision

The Hello, Again performance started with an idea – Beck would reimagine David Bowie’s classic, “Sound and Vision.” But it became more than another cover. It became an experience that presented a fresh take on the possibilities of the once familiar, for both the audience and the performers.

In collaboration with Beck and a “band” of more than 160 diverse musicians, Director Chris Milk created a concert experience that was fully immersive for both the audience and the performers. By capturing the concert with 360-degree cameras and binaural microphones, online viewers will have the opportunity to experience the show from any and every seat in the house. Visit the 360° Experience at www.hello-again.com.

Beck also recently dropped a new song called “Defriended” stream it here. According to rumours he is working on two new albums – a previously announced acoustic album, plus another album that the source describes as the proper follow-up to Modern Guilt.
