We’ve already had teasers in the form of Blue Moon and Waking Light, but now Beck’s new album, Morning Phase, is on NPR just waiting for you to stream it.
Musically, in Beck’s varied career he has been all over the map, rarely visiting the same spot twice. With Morning Phase, though, he’s returned to whichever place he was inhabiting when he recorded Sea Change, considered by no small number of Beckists to be his finest work. Me? I’m an Odelay kinda guy, but of the two, I’ll concede that Sea Change is probably the more worthy of a revisit, or if not a revisit exactly, then the one capable of producing the more interesting update, reboot, or sequel.
Listen the album in advance of its release next week over on NPR:
