Beck has kept busy this year releasing singles “Defriended,” “I Won’t Be Long,” and “Gimme“; partnering with Ford Motor Company and Levi’s; and touring here and abroad. Now he’s ready to reveal the acoustic album that was promised in May. It’s called Morning Phase and is out via his new label Capitol in February. It’ll be his first proper (i.e., non-sheet music) album since 2008’s Modern Guilt.
A press release calls Morning Phase a companion piece of sorts to Beck’s mellow and introspective modern classic Sea Change. It will feature many of the musicians who played on that 2002 album: Justin Meldal-Johnsen, Joey Waronker, Smokey Hormel, Roger Joseph Manning Jr., and Jason Falkner.
Details are forthcoming. For now, revisit Sea Change’s “Lost Cause.”
