Last week, Beck released Colors, his long-awaited uptempo pop album. We didn’t like it, but some people did, and Beck is now out on the promo circuit. Earlier today, he appeared as a musical guest on Ellen — the same episode, in fact, where his fellow early-’90s Los Angeles trailblazer Snoop Dogg showed up to talk about getting nominated for an Emmy. On Ellen, Beck wore a very big hat, pogoed a bunch, and sang the peppy single “Up All Night.” Watch the performance below.
Colors is out now on Capitol. Arcade Fire play Ellen tomorrow, and Haim are on Thursday.
