Beck continues to give fans subtle hints and previews of his upcoming album, Colors. The latest newly revealed track which will appear on his follow-up to 2014’s Morning Phase, is titled “Square One,” and arrived via the teaser trailer for the second season of HBO’s "Divorce" on Sunday. As heard in video clip above, the song’s piano-driven riff starts out with the beginning of the video, but it isn’t until around the 0:23 second mark when Beck’s trademark, up-tempo vocals come in and bring viewers back into his own alt-rock reality.
Colors is currently scheduled to arrive next Friday on Oct. 13. Up until now, the guitarist and singer has released and previewed a handful of different songs from his upcoming 13th studio album. He initially shared “Dreams” and “Wow” back in the start of last summer, with the latter supposed to have reportedly been collaboration alongside Chance The Rapper, which unfortunately never played out due to scheduling conflicts. Beck has also recently shared the album’s third and fourth singles with “Up All Night” and “Dear Life.”
The official announcement for Colors finally arrived back in August, but the long silence from the experimental music master left fans wondering if an answer to his Grammy-winning Morning Phase would ever arrive. In a statement to go with Colors’ announcement back on Aug. 11, Beck added, “I suppose the record could have come out a year or two ago, but 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."
The veteran musician did keep some fans happy with select festival appearances in 2017 in addition to a brief North American tour throughout the summer. Fans should expect many more 2018 concert and festival dates to be announced upon the release of the album next week, or shortly thereafter.
