You can now listen to “Blue Moon”, the first song to be taken from Beck‘s forthcoming album Morning Phase, which is set for release on February 24, 2014. Speaking about the album previously, Beck told Rolling Stone:
“I’m just fumbling around with chords and a mood. The songs are coming out of a California tradition. I’m hearing The Byrds, Crosby Stills and Nash, Gram Parsons, Neil Young – the bigger idea of what that sound is to me.” He added: “There’s this feeling of tumult and uncertainty, getting through that long, dark night of the soul – whatever you want to call it. These songs were about coming out of that – how things do get better.”
Morning Phase is Beck’s first album in six years, coming after Modern Guilt in 2008. Pre-order Morning Phase on iTunes.
