Beck explains new album 'Colors' and confirms release date

Beck has confirmed that he will release his forthcoming new album ‘Colors’ in October.

The record comes as the eagerly anticipated follow-up to 2014’s Morning Phase and has been a long time in coming, Beck himself explained how the record had been delayed for a number of months: “I suppose the record could have come out a year or two ago,” Beck told Rolling Stone. “But these are complex songs all trying to do two or three things at once. It’s not retro and not modern. To get everything to sit together so it doesn’t sound like a huge mess was quite an undertaking.”

“I’ve always been doing my thing,” he added. “I feel like more and more I have a sort of open passport where I just go in and go out, away from the eye of the hurricane. It’s interesting.”
