Beck Gets With XL Recordings in the UK for His Surprise Album

 

By: Spacelab Research Staff

 

Beck will release a new album this Summer, with very recent material written over the last few months. The album has been produced by Dangermouse, and features 10 tracks but is less than 30 minutes in duration.

 

It will be Beck's first album since The Information in 2006. He'll release it on his new home XL Recordings in Europe and Interscope in North America. The release is being called a below-the-radar release due to it's quick production time and release schedule.

 

Nobody's really confirming any of this, but recent large news out fits have picked it up and said that Cat Power makes an appearance (like this and this).

 

"Beck has recorded a new album, produced with Brain ‘Danger Mouse’ Burton, to be released this summer,” the release read. “The as-yet-untitled album contains 10 new songs,…a tightly assembled group…that range in lyrical tone from introspection and social commentary to off-the-cuff wordplay and lighthearted humor…Musically, the album’s ten tracks vacillate between economy and experimentation, hybrid and pop classicism," read a report from MTV.
