Beck has set a release date for spring for his forthcoming new album. Following the release of recent singles ‘Wow‘, ‘Dreams‘ and his song for the FIFA soundtrack ‘Up All Night‘, fans have been eagerly awaiting news on his 10th album and the follow-up to the GRAMMY-winning ‘Morning Phase‘ for some time.
Originally pencilled for release in summer 2015, it was then pushed back to a November 2016 release which never materialised. Now, it has been revealed that the LP will be released this spring in a new interview with The New York Times’ T Magazine. The singer also revealed that he once nearly wrote a “happy song” for Pharrell Williams but he was beaten to it. “I remember having this strong feeling that I wanted to work with him,” Beck said. “Ten years before wouldn’t have been the right time.
Max Martin thought Pharrell Williams had “ruined” his career. The 46-year-old record producer was known for helping create success for acts such as Britney Spears and the Backstreet Boys, and has admitted that for a while he thought the “super cool beats” created by fellow producer and singer Pharrell had robbed him of his success. Now, the songwriter admits it was his own fault for being “stuck in one place“, and he used the experience to help push his career in a new direction.
He said: “I’ve learned that things change. The whole boy band thing almost turned into a stock market crash …Then, there was a period when we thought that Pharrell and the others came and ruined it all for us with their super cool beats. “My first thought was: people are idiots for not understanding how great our stuff really is. Then, in the end, I realised: the world has moved on, we’re the ones who’re stuck in one place. So I started listening to other kinds of music. I spent a lot of time in New York and worked with artists who never really got anywhere. Then things took a new turn with ‘Since U Been Gone’ [by Kelly Clarkson].”
