Beck Releases New Music Video For “Colors”, The Title Track Off His 2017 LP [Watch]

first_imgLast October, alternative rocker Beck released his long-awaited thirteenth studio album, Colors. Colors sees Beck fuse the dreaminess of his 2014 release, Morning Phase, with the electronic looping and rhythms of his ’90s works. Though Morning Phase won him a Grammy award for Best Album, Beck never intended for the 2014 release to be so successful. In a 2016 Rolling Stone interview, Beck said that the album was only released “just so we would have something out, because we were going on tour.”Similarly, when asked about the writing and recording process behind 2017’s Colors, Beck said, “There’s a substratum to a lot of the songs—songs within other songs, choruses that became bridges… It’s not far from how I made my first couple of records.”Almost exactly a year from Colors release, Beck has just unveiled a new music video for the title track, directed by Edgar Wright, who was most recently commended for his crime/thriller flick, Baby Driver. The new music video features Beck, actress Alison Brie, and a crew of dancers in full-body blue suits (not to be confused with Blue Man Group), with some well-thought-out choreographic work. The video is a true testament to Beck’s avant-garde style, with dashes of colorful psychedelia sprinkled in.Watch Beck’s new music video for “Colors” below:Beck – “Colors” (Official Music Video)[Video: Beck]The only upcoming appearance slated for Beck is a headlining slot at Memphis’s Mempho Music Festival, this upcoming Saturday, October 6th.For more information on this weekend’s Mempho Music Festival, please visit their website.[H/T Jambands.com]last_img
