Ever since Beck
's critically acclaimed Morning Phase
wowed everyone in 2014, we've been waiting patiently for news about a thirteenth studio album. To top it all off, the lead-up to the album has been rocky to say the least. The first single from the untitled album was "Dreams," which was released in June 2015. It wasn't until a full year had passed that we heard from Beck again, when he dropped "Wow" in June 2016. At this point, he confirmed that the new album (still untitled, at the time) would be out in October of that year.
Obviously, that didn't happen. The album's release was delayed, and we haven't really heard all that much since, with the exception of various tracks being confirmed for the album, like "Up All Night" and "Dear Life." Thankfully, that changed today when Beck revealed to Rolling Stone
that his new album, Colors,
will finally be out this October.
In the same interview, he also discussed Colors
' turbulent recording process, which led to its lengthy delay, saying, "these are complex songs all trying to do two or three things at once... To get everything to sit together so it doesn't sound like a huge mess was quite an undertaking."
is being produced by Greg Kurstin, who is rapidly growing in popularity and demand. He's also producing the new Foo Fighters album, which is also out later this year, and lately he's worked with big-name artists like Adele (he provided most of the instrumentation for the inescapable "Hello") and Halsey.
