BECK “COLORS (PICARD BROTHERS REMIX)”

BECK
“COLORS (PICARD BROTHERS REMIX)” 

NOW AVAILABLE

COLORS WORLDWIDE TOUR CONTINUES

Beck is proud to unveil his latest collaboration for the latest remix of the title track “Colors,” by contemporary Parisian duo the Picard Brothers (a.k.a. Clément and Maxine Picard)—now available to stream and download across digital platforms: http://beck.to/ColorsPicardBrosRemix

Adding to the already vibrant and kaleidoscopic sparkle of the original, the “Colors (Picard Brothers Remix)” brings an otherworldliness that only this pairing could conceive.

“Colors” is both the namesake and mission statement of Beck’s 13th album (and sixth to crack the U.S. Top 10), released October 13, 2017 by Capitol Records (and streamed 300 million times since). Following up 2015 GRAMMY Album of the Year winner Morning Phase and featuring “Dreams,” “Wow,” “Dear Life” and “Up All Night” (Beck’s third Billboard Alternative #1), Colors has been hailed as “a great party record” (MC HAMMER) “yet another milestone” (WALL STREET JOURNAL),  “a euphoric blast” (USA TODAY) and a  “classic, sneakily inventive, massively catchy” (AV CLUB) album  “that proves that Beck is still one of rock’s most intrepid inventors” (ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY).

Beck resumes his worldwide tour for Colors after an incredible milestone (not to mention first-ever) performance at the iconic Madison Square Garden which left Rolling Stone raving: A polished, career-spanning performance…emphasized Beck’s unparalleled stylistic versatility.”  

Before Beck hits the stage at Outside Lands, fans can have chance to score tickets to a special, intimate performance at The Independent in San Francisco on August 8th—tickets go on sale today, 10am local time, and can be purchased here.

BECK + U2 = “Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way (Beck Remix)”

BECK + U2 =

“Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way (Beck Remix)”

LISTEN HERE: https://u2.lnk.to/BeckRmxPR

Beck has reunited with U2 to remix another track from the band’s international #1 album, Songs of Experience (Interscope). This time, current single “Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way” gets the Beck remix treatment, as the GRAMMY Album of the Year winning musician pulls from his palette of sonic colors to emphasize the organic foundations underpinning its soaring harmonies.

“Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way” comes from the critically acclaimed, Songs Of Experience,called “Their best album in years” by USA Today and “a remarkable accomplishment for a band in its fifth decade of existence” by Variety.

Beck previously collaborated with U2 on an exclusive remix of “Lights of Home (Free Yourself/Beck Remix),” released to mark Record Store Day earlier this year. Prior to the release of his critically acclaimed Colors (Capitol), Beck supported U2 on the final U.S. leg of last year’s #1 grossing tour, The Joshua Tree Tour 2017.

U2 is currently in the midst of the groundbreaking eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE Tour, whose May 2nddebut in Tulsa, OK moved Rolling Stone to rave “after this incredible opening night almost anything feels possible.” During the tour’s swing through Nashville, U2 became the first act in the history of Jack White’s Third Man Records to record a single directly to acetate: a stripped-down acoustic version of “Love Is Bigger Than Anything in Its Way,” to be released by Third Man Records on limited edition vinyl. Details to be announced soon.

PREVIEW NOW: https://youtu.be/JQKZGziMOoI

All the Colors. See the Colors. Feel the Colors… on a kaleidoscopic audiovisual voyage with Beck as your guide. Available exclusively at apple.co/ColorsMusicVideo, “Colors” is the dazzling new video directed by Edgar Wright (Baby Driver, The Cornetto Trilogy, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World), that brings the title track of Beck’s current album to vivid multi-hued life, aided and abetted by kinetic choreography by Ryan Heffington. Beck and Wright’s collaboration on the “Colors” video has resulted in something completely alien yet strangely familiar, as if an extraterrestrial culture had accidentally intercepted a transmission of a Busby Berkeley film—and chosen to create their own sequel.

Apple Music is home to the best music video-watching experience available anywhere — all ad-free. Starting right now, fans can enjoy “Colors” and other amazing Beck music videos on Apple Music at http://applemusic.com/musicvideos.

“Colors” is both the namesake and mission statement of Beck’s 13th album (and sixth to crack the U.S. Top 10), released October 13, 2017 by Capitol Records (and streamed 212 million times since). Following up 2015 GRAMMY Album of the Year winner Morning Phase and featuring “Dreams,” “Wow,” “Dear Life” and “Up All Night” (Beck’s third Billboard Alternative #1), Colors has been hailed as “yet another milestone” (WALL STREET JOURNAL),  “a euphoric blast” (USA TODAY) and a  “classic, sneakily inventive, massively catchy” (AV CLUB) album  “that proves that Beck is still one of rock’s most intrepid inventors” (ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY).

“Colors” is directed by Edgar Wright and choreographed by Ryan Heffington. The video was produced by Bridgitte Pugh and executive produced by Nina Soriano for Anonymous Content.

BECK: “FIX ME” VIDEO PREMIERE FROM NEW ALBUM COLORS AVAILABLE NOW

BECK 

“FIX ME” 

VIDEO PREMIERE FROM NEW ALBUM COLORS AVAILABLE NOW 

DIRECTED BY BROOK LINDER

PRESENTED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE ASPCA® 

www.aspca.org/helpanimals

“Delicate dreaminess and longing…it’s the highlight of the whole record.”—PASTE

“A gorgeously melancholy mood piece”—AV CLUB

Following this morning’s sneak peek premiere on BuzzFeed, Beck and co-stars Mame, Riku, Gaku and Qoo—follow them on Instagram at @tamanegi.qoo.riku—have proudly unveiled the wonderfully whimsical, dare we say Instagrammable, video for “Fix Me,” from his new album Colors (Capitol Records).

Set in the otherworldly hills of Yamagata, Japan, the video for “Fix Me” is a tender look into the world of Mame and her canine guardians, featuring scenes that oscillate from highly stylized and costumed tableaus to carefree games of frisbee and feasting on birthday cake.

Director Brook Linder commented on the unique experience of making the video: “There’s something really special happening in the mountains of Yamagata, and we were lucky enough to enter Mame’s world for two afternoons in November. That home is heaven on Earth. One of the dogs, Qoo, and I had a special connection —I think he’s my great-grandfather reincarnated… or something. He looked into my soul.”

For the video’s release, Beck has partnered with the ASPCA® (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) to enable fans to make an easy charitable donation—simply visit www.aspca.org/helpanimals or watch the video here to help make a difference today.

“Fix Me” is the cool down closer of Beck’s 13th album Colors, hailed as “a euphoric blast of experimental pop… fresh and essential” by Rolling Stone, and more recently becoming a fixture of Best of 2017 lists including Rolling Stone, KCRW, Q, ABC, NME, Mojo and more. Colors has been holding strong in the charts since its top 3 debut in October 2017, currently buoyed by the #1 alternative single “Up All Night” and its epic video, the latter nominated in the Best Music Video category of the 60th annual Grammy Awards taking place Sunday, January 28.

“Colors is a great party record.”—MC HAMMER

Already being hailed in early reviews as “a euphoric blast of experimental pop” (ROLLING STONE) and “yet another milestone in his fascinating and unpredictable career” (THE WALL STREET JOURNAL), Beck’s lucky 13th album Colors is released today on Capitol Records.

The album’s release is accompanied by the “Colors” slime visualizer—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’ release was preceded most recently by the buoyant “Up All Night”—check out Beck performing it on Later… with Jools Holland earlier this week —the current single from Beck’s first full length offering of new material since 2014’s Morning Phase took Album of the Year top honors at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards.

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.

Colors‘ release weekend will also be commemorated with one-time-only dedicated pop-up stores featuring exclusive merchandise, music and more. The Colors pop-up store locations and times are as follows:

Saturday October 14:

New York – Brooklyn Flea, Soho – 10am to 6pm

Tickets will be on sale from October 14. Check Beck.com for further information.

BECK: “UP ALL NIGHT” NEWEST TRACK & EPIC VIDEO FROM COLORS

BECK

“Up All Night”

NEWEST TRACK & EPIC VIDEO FROM COLORS

FOLLOW UP TO GRAMMY ALBUM OF THE YEAR MORNING PHASE OUT OCTOBER 13

Pre-Order Live Now

 

Beck has issued an anthemic call to arms–and legs–with “Up All Night,” the irresistible new single and epic video one-two salvo in advance of his imminent 13th album and “euphoric blast of experimental pop” (ROLLING STONE), Colors – due out October 13 on Capitol Records.

In keeping with the life-affirming spirit and groove of the song itself, the sweeping cinematic arc created by Director Canada, Executive Producer Oscar Romagosa and Producer Laura Serra Estorch features a narrative of triumph over hallucinogenic adversity. “Up All Night” tracks its fearless heroine (Solene Rigot) through an increasingly bizarre series of trials as she races against the sun-and at times the very rules of reality-to rescue a fallen friend (Pedro Attenborough).

Having appeared in an earlier incarnation on the EA SPORTS FIFA 17 soundtrack, the buoyant “Up All Night” is the newest advance taste of the most aptly titled work in Beck’s storied discography. Beck’s first full length offering of new material since 2014’s Morning Phase took Album of the Year top honors at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards, Colors unfolds in an intoxicating rainbow of auditory tricks and treats, making it a shoo-in for the summeriest smash of the fall season. Prior to “Up All Night,” the album’s most recent single was the captivating piano-driven “Dear Life,” released August 24 and eliciting Beatles and Beach Boys comparisons from THE NEW YORK TIMES amongst a slew of generation spanning critical raves including:
“‘Dear Life’ makes good on Beck’s promise, with waltzing pianos, a killer guitar riff, and am immediately memorable chorus.”–ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

“Leave it to Beck to craft a sunny, upbeat pop song that doubles as a scream into the void… the kaleidoscopic new single from his forthcoming album, Colors, has something for partiers and wallflowers alike… when Beck asks on the buoyant chorus about the thrill being gone, the answer is: not yet-not in his career, not in this life-affirming song.”–PITCHFORK

“Fans of Beck will have even more to love in the perennial hitmaker’s latest… a dark pop-rock sound that hints at influences from everyone from The Beatles to Spoon.”–TIME 5 Songs You Need To Listen To This Week

The complete track listing for Colors is:

Colors
7th Heaven
I’m So Free
Dear Life
No Distraction
Dreams
Wow
Up All Night
Square One
Fix Me

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.

Beck recently accepted U2’s invitation to appear as special guest on the current leg of The Joshua Tree Tour 2017, on which he is supporting the band on stadium dates that began September 3 at Ford Field in Detroit and continue through September 22 at San Diego’s Qualcomm Stadium.

BECK: “WOW (TOKiMONSTA REMIX)”

BECK
“WOW (TOKiMONSTA Remix)” 

NOW AVAILABLE: http://smarturl.it/WowTokimonsta

unnamed

Following its surprise premiere on KCRW yesterday morning, the remix of Beck’s smash Day-Glo psych hop anthem “Wow” by Los Angeles producer TOKiMONSTA is now available to stream and download across digital platforms:

http://smarturl.it/WowTokimonsta
YouTube 

The “Wow (TOKiMONSTA Remix)” adds yet another dimension to Beck’s “outrageous pop anthem” (ROLLING STONE) and its “kaleidoscopic chorus” (USA TODAY), as did last month’s mind-bending video directed by Beck and Grady Hall.

In that time, the original “Wow” single and its video have racked up listens and views in the cumulative tens of millions, with digital track sales in the hundreds of thousands and a spot in the top 100 songs sought out on Shazam this week.

“Wow” follows last year’s summer smash “Dreams” as the second single from Beck’s forthcoming 13th album, his first full length studio effort since 2014’s Album of the Year GRAMMY winner Morning Phase (Capitol).
