Beck Talks With Rolling Stone

Beck talked with Rolling Stone and mentions his new album, Colors, will come out in October:

“I suppose the record could have come out a year or two ago,” says Beck, sitting in a conference room of a trendy downtown New York boutique hotel. “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.”

Beck Talks With Rolling Stone About New Album

Beck recently spoke with Rolling Stone about his work on his new album:

The sound, Beck says, was inspired by five years of heavy touring. He played big summer festivals to young audiences, and he soaked up the energy of acts like the Strokes, with whom he toured last year. “It’s a summer night, people have their hands up,” he says. “It’s a communal, celebratory thing. I wanted to take that into the studio, a kind of energy or joy. The thing that wakes you up a little bit.”
