Beck Hansen has made his return with his first full-length album in 5 years, Morning Phase. It is the twelfth studio album and was released in February 2014 through his new label, Capitol Records. Morning Phase is a sequel to Sea Change, the brooding 2002 record frequently mentioned as his masterpiece. Beck received the Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album twice and holds the record with Björk for the most nominations for a solo artist, each having six nominations.
We all loved his hit song, “Loser,” but you need to check out his new material! While the songs on Morning Phase are slow and acoustic, they give off a happy vibe. There are surprisingly approachable settings as well; songs that start with humble acoustic guitar and grow into vast and dazzling canyons of sound.
He will be performing at The Fox Theatre on Tuesday, July 22nd. Show starts at 8pm. Tickets range from $53.70 – $91.25.
In his new song below, the lyrics “We tore it all down, and buried me underneath the weight” show a glimpse of new frontiers in letting go and moving on, told by someone who wasn’t thinking quite this way before.
