Songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Beck keeps the party going in a brand new music video for his new single, “Up All Night,” off his forthcoming studio album Colors, available October 13th from Capitol Records.
Colors was recorded over a four year period, from 2013 to 2017, at executive producer Greg Kurstin‘s studio in Los Angeles.
The lead single, “Dreams” was first released in the summer of 2015, and is an upbeat dance track with a much different sound than his last album, Morning Phase, and it was later used on the soundtrack to EA Sports’ FIFA ’16.
Almost an entire year later, Beck released his second single, “WOW,” an experimental trap track that ranked at No. 60 on Billboard‘s 100 Best Pop Songs of 2016. In a later interview with NME, he explained that he had originally wanted to try and get Chance the Rapper to collaborate on the track, but didn’t hear back after four or five months. “I’m not sure what happened with that,” Beck said.
His latest single, “Up All Night,” was released on Sept. 6th, and is an energetic pop, party-anthem starring French actress/musician Solène Rigot who suits up in armor before crashing the party to rescue her intoxicated friend, played by Pedro Attenborough.
The song is simple and direct, unlike much of Beck’s early experimental work, and sounds like it belongs in the realm of today’s mainstream pop hits. It’s a radio-friendly romp that is catchy and, in some ways, similar to such commercial pop stars as, The Weeknd and Portugal. The Man.
Colors is a much more bubbly and carefree album than much of his earlier work. The new album also features 11 tracks with a total run of approximately 43 minutes and is expected to be released on October 13, 2017.
