Beck has given fans another taster of his forthcoming 13th album ‘Colors‘ in the shape of the captivating piano-driven ‘Dear Life‘ – and you can listen to it now on the Shoot Music – New Releases Playlist.
Hailed in advance by Rolling Stone as a “euphoric blast of experimental pop”, ‘Colors’ – released October 13 via Virgin EMI – is Beck’s first full length offering of new material since 2014’s ‘Morning Phase‘ took Album of the Year at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards, as well as Best Rock Album and Best Engineered Album (Non-Classical) category.
That album, which also includes the two tracks – ‘Dreams’ and ‘Wow’ – that preceded ‘Dear Life’, also saw him nominated for ‘International Male Solo Artist’ at the 2015 BRIT Awards.
‘Colors’ was produced by Greg Kurstin and Beck, with the exception of ‘Wow‘ which was produced by Beck and Cole M.G.N., and ‘Fix Me‘, produced by Beck. The album was mixed by Serban Ghenea, except ‘Dreams‘ and ‘Up All Night‘, which were mixed by Greg Kurstin and Beck.
Following an August 27 headline engagement at MusicFest NW in Portland OR, Beck will join U2 as special guest on The Joshua Tree Tour 2017. He will support U2 on a series of stadium dates beginning September 3 at Ford Field in Detroit and winding up September 22 at San Diego’s Qualcomm Stadium.
Beck released his first album, ‘Golden Feelings’, back in 1993 and five of his last 13 albums have been in the top 10 of the US Album chart. The LA-born star also has two UK top 10 albums to his name (‘Modern Guilt’ – 2008 and ‘Morning Phase’ – 2014).
