Watch Beck Bring Morning Phase (And Father John Misty) To SNL

By Michael Nelson / March 2, 2014

Today, Beck’s Mellow Gold turned 20 years old, and to celebrate, he’s playing Saturday Night Live — for the seventh time in his career — with host Jim Parsons. (Well, to celebrate and maybe also to promote his brand-new release, Morning Phase.) Check out his SNL performance of Morning Phase tracks “Blue Moon” with vocals so drowned in reverb that they seem disembodied even as they emerge from his mouth and “Wave” with an orchestra below. His band includes J. Tillman (Father John Misty).
