Beck’s 13th album, “Colors,” was released today on Oct. 13 via Capitol Records.
The LP includes the single “Up All Night.” Beck recently performed the song on “Later…with Jools Holland” earlier this week. “Colors” is a follow-up to 2014’s “Morning Phase,” which won Album of the Year at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards.
The album’s release comes with what Beck’s reps called a “slime visualizer,” which they described as a “multicolor visual expression of the title track/mission statement of the album: a kaleidoscopic palette of sonic shapes and moods, conjuring mental rainbows while tempos, rhythms, melodies, even volume levels shift to near collapse, before locking together into undeniable hooks that defy their underlying complexity.”
“Colors” was produced by Greg Kurstin and Beck, with the exception of “Wow” produced by Beck and Cole M.G.N., and “Fix Me” produced by Beck. The album was mixed by Serban Ghenea, except “Dreams” and “Up All Night,” which were mixed by Greg Kurstin and Beck.
The album’s release is being kicked off with special one-time-only dedicated pop-up stores in four cities that will feature Beck merchandise, music and more. Pop-up merchandise will include city-specific shirts and tote bags, lithographs, and free coloring books with the purchase of deluxe vinyl. Check out times and locations below.
