Following a tweet late last week suggesting a new...something (we only got artwork and a title, "Dreams"), Beck has released a single by that name, his first new music since Grammy Album of the Year-winning "Morning Phase."
Some were...well...dreaming, of a surprise full album after the ambiguous tweet, but, alas, a single is all we get.
It's a real departure from the totally synth-y, mood music of "Morning Phase," but that's what we have come to expect from Beck. He may be the most musically versatile artist out there, and he rarely sticks to one genre for more than a year or two at a time. I like the new single - it's definitely really pop-heavy and will no doubt find its way onto the radio in no time. Hopefully this is the first taste of another full album, as Beck has been known to churn out records in quick succession in the past.
