Beck made a huge splash on Monday with the release of his new single "Saw Lightning" which you can listen to now by playing the video above. Enjoy the latest work from the Grammy Award winner, before getting tickets to see Beck live here at AXS.
According to Monday's press release, "Saw Lightning" is the first single from an upcoming album titled Hyperspace. The single features uber-producer and artist Pharrell Williams, who adds a lot to it - he's responsible for the bulk of the rhythm section. It's an interesting collaboration between two incredibly creative artists, and the end result is a very trippy song that people can groove to all spring and summer. Pharrell's drums and vocals fit in perfectly with Beck's rapid-fire sound, and be sure to keep an ear out for the slide guitar.
Beck's last album Colors, dropped in October 2017 and earned two Grammys for Best Alternative Music Album and Best Engineered Album (Non-Classical). It was also a commercial hit, topping both Billboard's Top Rock Albums Chart and the magazine's Top Alternative Albums Chart. After a success like that, the question is always how an artist will follow up, and "Saw Lightning" is proof that Beck is doing some of his best work yet.
"Saw Lightning" can be downloaded or streamed now by clicking here. A release date for the full Hyperspace album hasn't been announced yet.
It's highly likely that Beck will add the song to his set list when he performs with Cage The Elephant at Forest Hills Stadium in Queens, New York, on Aug. 17 - tickets are on sale now and can be purchased here. The co-headlining tour makes its way to Fiddler's Green Amphitheatre in Denver on Jul. 23 with tickets on sale now here. Between new tour dates and new music, this spring is busy for Beck - and it's only going to get better from here.
