1) tentatively scheduled for next September
2) as yet untitled
3) Beck says “I haven’t quite finished it. But I’d say it’s finding its legs” and that “it’s still in flux.”
4) “I do want to put out something that is a lot more up, and energetic, and melodic.“ ““Some are experimental and abrasive.”
5) It’s “not of a piece” with Morning Phase. “It’ll be quite different to this record.”
6) Beck says, “I’m thinking more about the live show, which is more about energy. It’s a lot more up.“
All of this suggests he might want to make an album he can support with another high energy tour like those from the late ’90s.
In addition to “Blue Moon” being available on iTunes and Spotify today, rare live versions of four other songs on “Morning Phase” – along with details on both of his 2014 albums -are here http://thefutureheart.com/2014/01/20/beck-morning-phase-preview/
The blue 7″ released this month containing these 4 previously unreleased songs are on sale at many indie record shops, not just the retailers Coyne visited on his “record store tour.”

Hey, this was taken from this post (http://thefutureheart.com/2013/11/13/beck-interview/) which I wrote largely through translating an interview posted two days ago from Argentina (today the original interviewer confirmed my translation). A lot of sites (ie Stereogum) saw my post and reposted bits, focusing on the Spotify comments. Beck clearly has it on his mind however in the context of the full interview Spotify was discussed only as part of a larger conversation on change, and how it’s inevitable. He wasn’t coming out and “hating” on Spotify in the sense that Thom Yorke did. In other words, don’t expect any twitter tirades about Spotify from Beck anytime soon. That’s an impression created more by all the articles that popped up today than by Beck’s actual comments.
Also, Beck is headlining Buenos Aires’ Planeta Terra Festival live tonight and you can watch online https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=634996336550910
