Hailed in advance by Rolling Stone as a “euphoric blast of experimental pop,” Beck’s 13th album Colors has been confirmed for an October 13 release on EMI Music Australia. Possibly the most aptly titled work in Beck’s storied discography, Colors unfolds in an intoxicating rainbow of auditory tricks and treats, making it a shoo-in for the summeriest smash of the Spring season. The newest advance taste of the album is the captivating piano-driven Dear Life, available instantly with pre-orders and subject of a lyric video now live at beck.to/dearlifelyric.
Colors is Beck’s first full length offering of new material since 2014’s Morning Phase took Album of the Year top honors at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards, as well as Best Rock Album and Best Engineered Album (Non-Classical) category. In addition to the newly unveiled Dear Life, Colors includes both Beck singles that preceded it: a new mix of the psych-dance summer jam Dreams that NPR hailed as “urgently contemporary and irresistibly vintage” as it gave Beck his second #1 single at AAA radio (the first being Morning Phase’s Blue Moon), and the retro-futuristic earworm and USA Today Song of the Week “Wow” that had Stereogum praising its “big, sweet incandescent hook” and plainly stating “It’s a great song!” while Esquire rejoiced “All hail the return of Party Beck.”
Colors can be pre-ordered through Apple Music, pre-saved via Spotify, and more. The track listing for the album is:
- 7th Heaven
- I’m So Free
- Dear Life
- No Distraction
- Up All Night
- Square One
- Fix Me
Colors was produced by Greg Kurstin and Beck, with the exception of Wow produced by Beck and Cole M.G.N., and Fix Me produced by Beck. The album was mixed by Serban Ghenea, except Dreams and Up All Night, which were mixed by Greg Kurstin and Beck.
