Beck has lately been working on a new acoustic album, the follow-up to his 2012 sheet music affair Song Reader. But lately, he’s debuted a couple of decidedly non-acoustic songs, so who even knows what he’s up to. Last month, he shared a pillowy, synth-heavy new track called “Defriended.” And now he’s announced plans for another single. “I Won’t Be Long” is a similarly soft and luxuriant affair; it’s the sort of immaculately recorded affair that could soundtrack a movie montage about someone driving a convertible up the Pacific Coast Highway. Give it a listen below.
“I Won’t Be Long” is out 7/8 as a 45-rpm 12″ single, and its B-side is a 15-minute extended version of the song. Pre-order it here.
