Modern Rock 98.7 posted that there will be new Beck music tomorrow at noon (I guess their noon, which would be roughly our 5pm).

Beck's new song is coming out tomorrow. And he's posted snippets of the song on his Instagram account and his website. They are still coming. The idea is that when he's finished, the whole song will be there, and people can put the pieces together to hear the whole song. It's quite fun (I'm still undecided if actually like the song... but I'll wait till I hear it all).

Just had a listen on Instagram. A few of the clips aren't too bad, the others I'm not sure about yet. But I'm excited to hear the whole thing!

Here's the first song then. Modern hip hop beats although the lyrics are sung. I detect slight vocal modification, which works well. And yeah, pretty good stuff.

Listening right now...I love it. The backing vocals have a Modern Guilt album kind of feel to them. Really really good. But then you have a different kind of sound with the beats instead of a proper drum kit. Overall, very impressive.

I'm guessing this is single #1 from his next album. I can't wait!

EDIT: His new album is supposedly out on the 21st October but it doesn't have a name yet.

WOW!

I love it! It's awesome. It's old Beck updated to 2016. He never gets it wrong, does he?

Giddy up :mrgreen:

The simple drum machine beat with it's little Morricone whistle just makes me think of Broken but not as good.

Interesting. Other way round for me. Dreams is a fun song, but quite safe. This is a lot more adventurous. And has much better lyrics. Apparently a social commentary on the instant gratification of social media - "It's like wow/it's like right now".

Dreams grew on me but it took a while. Wow hit be instantly, I love it.

So, I guess everybody here will hate for what I'll say, but the song it's sorta like... okay. I mean, it might grow on me, it is groovy and beaty, but Dreams hit me instantly, while this... not so much. Maybe it's because I didn't properly dig his pre-Sea Change stuff much, or something. I'll buy it and put into a mix or something - to see how it goes :)

WOW is my official reaction to "Wow"..... Vintage Beck sounds so refreshing, doesn't it? Has that "Odelay" vibe that I've always favored...I absolutely cannot wait for October or when newer material is subsequently revealed!

The "giddy up" motif is still a bit cheesy tbh, but it's grown on me a lot even though I liked it on first listen.

Me neither! Best song he's done since the Modern Guilt album I think, and he's done some GREAT stuff since then. I love it. :mrgreen:
