Beck has shared another collaboration with Pharrell on track titled ‘Everlasting Nothing’ that will be on his next album ‘Hyperspace’ which arrives on November 22nd. In the meanwhile Beck sat down with The Sun to talk about the working process on the new album with Pharrell Williams. In what was meant to be a “year off” for Beck Hansen, he began to mess around with some songs he had started with Pharrell Williams. During downtime after an intense period of touring, Beck began to play around with ideas and sounds the two had come up with years earlier. Before he knew it, seven of Hyperspace’s 11 tracks with Pharrell were finished and Beck had made his 14th album — and one of his most collaborative.
“I thought maybe I’d come up with a single and release it next year, Then things accelerated. Within two months we pretty much had the whole thing together. And here I am.” Hyperspace is a minimalist album named after a video game Beck played as a youngster. He says: “It deals with anxiety and fears as well as the beauty and opportunities this age of technology brings us. I hadn’t really been making records for myself for years. So making this with Pharrell was something I needed to do. We’ve known each other for a long time. Then we ran into each other in elevators in hallways, at an awards show, and started hanging out.

Beck has officially announced his 14th studio album, ‘Hyperspace’, which will be released next month, and shared the tracks ‘Uneventful Days’ and ‘Hyperlife’ produced with Pharrell Williams. Seven of the album’s 11 tracks, including the previously released ‘Saw Lightning’ and the new single ‘Uneventful Days’, were co-written and co-produced by Pharrell. “I’d always wanted to make a record with him,” Beck told NME. “We had been friendly over the years and had got together and talked about making some music back in 2012, but around that time he ended up putting out a song with Daft Punk, then ‘Blurred Lines’ and ‘Happy’.”
