Watch: Beck announces the date for his next album and releases a new music video

Beck has announced that his next album Colors will be released on October 13th.

Finally, after months of teasing videos, Beck has announced the release date for his next album.

To celebrate the announcement, Beck has also released a new music video for the song 'Dear Life'.

The music video is a wonderful mish-mash of colours, geometric shapes, and disparate images.

It is Beck. It doesn't have to make sense to be interesting.

The music itself is a continuation of the sort of neo-60's psychedelia that Beck started to experiment with in 2008's release Modern Guilt. This one, however, has a bit more of a lean towards a Beatles-esque sound.

Check out the video below.

The Information

Beck's The Information veers between two distinct styles – the kind of blues/folk/hip-hop mash-ups that Beck has made his own, and a more melancholy, plaintive type of tune that he has increasingly favoured in recent years.

Cellphone's Dead

We should know by now that everything Beck does is drowned in genius. The first track from the Nigel Godrich-produced The Information is so intellectually assured that it double-bluffs us, and cunningly is nothing more than some cool-as-fuck rapping over some funky beats. Ho ho ho – crazy Beck, pretending to be all average and follow the path he’s trodden before. We know better though: this is art.

I’ve always felt that remix albums were a bit of a scam, expecting fans who already bought the album proper to shell out again for a collection of reheats. However, when the album in question is the latest slice of funk, rock and whatever you’re having yourself from musical chameleon Beck and your remixers include the likes of Air, Ad-Rock and Dizzee Rascal, perhaps it’s time to sit up and take notice.

Guero (Spanish for ‘white boy’) represents then is an attempt to reconnect with the slacker who went away. Having downplayed the legacy of Odelay for nearly a decade, Beck has retrieved his baggy trousers and tie-dye accessories and gone back to work.
