Check out "Blue Moon"...
NME reports that Beck has released his new single "Blue Moon" online. It's the first from his new album Morning Phase, which will be released on February 24. He previewed the song last week. He's also released the artwork for the new album.
He previously told Rolling Stone about the album: "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. 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."
This is Beck's first album in six years after 2008's Modern Guilt. This is described as a "companion piece" to 2002's mostly acoustic album Sea Change. Those set to appear on the album include Justin Meldal-Johnsen, Joey Waronker, Smokey Hormel, Roger Joseph Manning Jr and Jason Falkner.
Here's the track list:
'Heart Is A Drum'
'Don't Let It Go'
