Beck announces long-awaited new album 'Colors'

Beck fans, your long wait for new music is over--well, almost.

A new feature from Rolling Stone reveals that the singer's new experimental-pop album, Colors, will be released in October. It's a long time coming, going on four years in the making.

"I suppose the record could have come out a year or two ago," Beck told the magazine. "But these are complex songs all trying to do two or three things at once. It's not retro and not modern. To get everything to sit together so it doesn't sound like a huge mess was quite an undertaking."

The project is a reunion of sorts with producer Greg Kurstin--known for his work with Adele, Sia, Kelly Clarkson, Halsey, and the Foo Fighters. The two musicians first worked together when Kurstin worked as Beck's touring keyboardist on his 2002 Sea Change tour, and they're tackling almost all the instruments on Colors themselves, rather than involve outside musicians.

We've already gotten a preview of the album with two songs. "Up All Night" was included as part of the soundtrack of the FIFA 17 soccer video game and in a commercial for Fossil smartwatches, while a video featuring Beck's children was released for "Wow."

Colors is the follow-up to 2015's Morning Phase, which earned Beck a Grammy for Album of the Year.

Beck is also out on a headlining tour this summer, including a stop in Redmond, Washington, with tickets on sale right here on AXS. In the fall, he'll be heading out to open for U2 on their stadium tour celebrating the 30th anniversary of The Joshua Tree.
