Beck -- "Colors" -- 10/13/17

So Beck's new song Dreams has been on regular rotation for the past few weeks on the radio. Which brought up a few things.

1) Never expected to hear "new" Beck in regular rotation on the radio again
2) I initially thought it was Walk The Moon song, but it was nowhere near as god awful as Shut Up and Dance.
3) I feel like this is Beck trolling the music industry with how easily he can throw together a pop song if he wanted to.



It's a catchy song, fits well in the Naked and Famous / Foster the People / MGMT genre that was popular a few years back.

I've listened to the song a ton of times since it came out. It'll be fun to have an album that'll presumably contain other dance type tracks.

I think he's trolling even harder now... especially on Kanye... with this new one:

Beck has formally announced his upbeat new album Colors, and released a first single, “Dear Life.” Colors is out October 13 from Capitol. It follows Morning Phase, which won Album of the Year at the 2015 Grammys.

Two earlier Beck singles, “Dreams” and “Wow” also appear on the new album. Another song, “Up All Night” previously appeared in the FIFA 2017 soundtrack and in an ad for smartwatches. Hear “Dear Life” and see the album artwork and track list below.





Beck, Colors track list:
1. “Wow”
2. “Dreams”
3. “No Distractions”
4. “7th Heaven”
5. “Dear Life”
6. “Up All Night”
7. “Fix Me”
8. “Square One”
9. “Colors”
10. “I’m So Free”
11. “How Far” (bonus track)

Didn't much care for his last album, but I love everything I've heard so far on this new one.

Re: Beck -- "Colors" -- 10/13/17

Was gonna say, at this rate seemed like he was gonna release the whole album as singles over the last few years. Nice to have a solid release date.

Wow sounded like a reject from The Information, but I'm liking Dear Life.

“Wow” is the best non-acoustic Beck song in maybe 15 years.

This album is not doing it for me. I like Beck when he is more funky and these are mostly just straight forward dance tracks.

I'm hit or miss on Beck. I think this album is a pop/dance masterpiece. He's having a hell of a good time here, and I like all 11 songs.

I will be buying this record.

Yeah, this is definitely a top three Beck album for me, and Wow is somehow growing on me.
