Featured Release This Week From Beck + Studio One Tracks Top 30 Playlist

Nov 6, 2017

Beck (Beck Hansen if you wish to be formal) has been performing music since the mid 1980s when he was a teenager in his native Los Angeles.  It's been a long, creative road of stylistic experimentation ever since, with eager anticipation of his next move among fans.  Beck reached a milestone when his 2014 record Morning Phase won the Grammy for Album of the Year.  Now comes the followup, Colors, his thirteenth studio album.  Beck took his time, working on the record (off and on) for four years.  The songs were recorded at co-producer Greg Kurstin's L.A. studio, with Beck and Kurstin playing nearly every instrument themselves.
